Re: [RedHotJazz] Re: Reliable label for 1920's Jazz
- You're right.I was lucky enough to find that RCA album I spoke of at the local Goodwill thrift store a couple of years ago.I first heard it back in college in the early '70s.Still,I can't believe that Goldkette didn't clear up the speculation about Bix's whereabouts after he let Bix go after that 1924 recording date.Goldkette,as you know,died in 1962.One of my acquaintances was Paul Mertz.I spoke to him in the spring of 1994 but his memory was pretty much gone as I couldn't hold attention.I spoke to Bill Challis again.I made a move to Texas for several months and when I came back in late summer of that year,I learned quite by accident that he had died in Harvey's Lake,Pennsylvania.Regarding Dorsey's being in Detroit;Sudlhalter told a story about Tommy Dorsey dating the girlfriend of a gangster.He wasn't afraid at first,but left when he saw the gangster was serious.Tommy leaves Pennsylvania and a musician named Jimmy Crossan was worked over instead.In closing,has anyone
heard of what became of the masters of Paramount Records that were found in a river bed?

I believe only Tommy Dorsey was present in the Goldkette session of
Nov 24, 1924 when the band recorded "I Didn't Know." Jimmy Dorsey had
been with Goldkette most of 1924, but had left before the Nov 24, 1924
session to join the California Ramblers.

Armstrong should still be around on a 3 CD box from Forte, but
otherwise Chronological Classics are the easiest option.
