Trumpet Around the corner
- I too am reading this new book by Charters's.
I am confused by page 88 and the reference to Emile Barnes, the
sentence is ungrammatical and or just plain wrong!!
Why also does Charters's dismiss the prospect of Buddy Bolden playing
" Make me a pallet on the floor"? This same reference from Baquet is
used by Daniel Hardie (The Birth of Jazz) as evidence of the tune being
in Bolden's repertoire. We know the tune was extant at the time from
Perhaps Charter's should have followed the suggestion that an updated
version of the seminal work,"Jazz New Orleans" was what was required.
However we should be grateful for any input from someone of the stature
of Samuel Charters.

I think that this sentence in Charters' book has suffered from poor
proofreading and makes sense only if you remove, or ignore, the
word "trombonist." My apologies to those subscribers to whom this must
all be very opaque, but there are one or two typos in Sam Charters'
Trumpet Around the Corner.
May I add to those already expressed my fervent hopes for the eventual
publication of the collected, or even selected, writings of Tony
Standish? This would make a wonderful book.
