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
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.
