J.C. Johnson and hisFive Hot Sparks
- Dear Scott,
This is getting interesting.
"Jet Black Blues" is the same as "Crying For You (Baby Mine)" - both
composed by J.C. Johnson.
I need more listening time, but at one hearing, it seems:
The trumpet players are different - presumably Walter Benett, on Jet Black
Blues, has more of the Armstrong touch while the trumpeter/cornetist on
"Crying For You (Baby Mine)" has other qualities.
However, both clarinetist and trombonist seem to be the same.
More details when I've had more time to listen carefully.
