      Is this Walter Bennett...? He reportedly came from somewhere in the
      West Indies. Bennett's Swamplanders of 1930 are very interesting in
      this regard, also for the clarinet and flute work of Alberto Soccaras
      (from Cuba).

      Notes for Brunswick 10-inch LP 'Wilmouth Houdini - Songs Of Trinidad'
      (BL 58007) state that all musicians backing Houdini on the 1931 sides
      were West Indian, except Al Morgan (from New Orleans). Clarinetist
      Walter Edwards had recorded with Sam Manning in the '20s; banjoist
      Charlie Vincento and Bennett are thought to be on the J.C. Johnson
      Five Hot Sparks session of 1929.
