RE: [RedHotJazz] Nelson, Eugene, and Bill Russell (was: Barnes Bocage)
We agree on the existence of a non-tailgate N.O.trb. style post-revival and
are still left with it's origins. I suggest it was the response of
trombonists coming from a swing section environment to the demands of the
revived 40s ensemble role. It is a pretty simple style owing nothing to the
work of Teagarden and school. Are there any examples in the limited pre-war
N.O. output ? Can experts in the 'classic' area find any wider provenance ?
Nobody in this world is a greater admirer of the great Bill Russell than
myself and to him we owe the debt for not only the AMs but also the glorious
music recorded in their wake. However, we must accept that he brought his
own agenda to N.O.in the 40s and played, at least, as active a role in the
creation of this unique music as any musician.
We also agree on the appropriateness of the work of Nelson within the Thomas
Still left. Did Bill re-invent the banjo ?
