Re: [RedHotJazz] NEW SONGS - J.C. Johnson and his Five Hot Sparks
- Dear Scott,
Thank you for more details.
To my last post, I also ask:
Who is George James and if he played alto sax so well, why isn't he better
It also seems I was on-the-mark with Simeon & Jabbo.
Is Ikey Robinson really that good on banjo? What other recordings come to
mind where he is so prominent?

The latest Rust guesses that the following personnel played on the record:
Walter Bennett - Cornet
Mabel Horsey - Piano (but then says that J.C. Johnson's other records are of
no jazz interest?)
Charlie Vincento - Banjo
Everyone else is unknown.
The Biograph LP that the songs came from has the following guesses but is
not sure of any of it:
Jabbo Smith - Cornet
Roy Palmer - Trombone
George James - Clarinet or Alto Sax or both
Omer Simeon - Clarinet
Mabel Horsey or J.C. Johnson - Piano (they acknowledge Rust's guess of Mabel
being the pianist but wonder why J.C. Johnson is not listed when his name is
on the label)
Ikey Robinson - Banjo
