    George James also played with Louis Armstrong and later in his life, with the Harlem Blues and Jazz Band, the outfit I saw him with in the 1970s. Even at that

      George James also played with Louis Armstrong and later in his life,
      with the Harlem Blues and Jazz Band, the outfit I saw him with in the
      1970s. Even at that somewhat advanced age, he was playing fine sax.

      George James replaced Omer Simeon with Jabbo Smith's Aces. Mabel Horsey
      is mentioned as having been contracted by JC Johnson to play on the
      Sparks recordings in the liner notes to an Arcadia LP "Jazz in Harlem",
      which includes Bennett's Swamplanders and Horsey's Hot Five. At first
      listen, I don't think it is Jabbo Smith on the Johnson sides, but
      haven't compared the playing on the Swamplanders or the Wilmoth Houdini
      sides (wonderful).

      Bennett was, I think, of Caribbean origin. He recorded with Gerald
      Clark's Night Owls and can be heard in that context on Poor But
      Ambitious, an Arhoolie CD by the calypso singer Wilmoth Houdini.
