      Al Morgan, bass player with Cab, was the younger brother of Sam, Isaiah

      and Andrew Morgan.



      John Lindsey (aka "Lindsay") played trombone with Piron and string bass

      with the Harlem Hamfats.



      Don't forget the grand-daddy of them all, the man who invented NO bass

      playing, Oliver's bass man (and founder of Oliver's band!), Jelly Roll

      Morton's brother-in-law, William Manuel "Bill" Johnson (1872-1972).

      I m interested in the claim that Bill Johnson invented N.O. bass playing. I ve searched my sources in vain for confirmation. Where is this from JT ?

        I'm interested in the claim that Bill Johnson 'invented N.O. bass playing.' I've searched my sources in vain for confirmation. Where is this from JT ?

        According to Chilton, he took up string bass in 1900 and left N.O. for California in 1909. Unfortunately, although photos prove he played bass with Oliver, we only have him on banjo. However, he is heard in full glory on the Dodds Victors.

        In his autobiography, Pops Foster, who was playing professionally in N.O. bands from 1906, only mentions Johnson in passing but recalls Henry Kimball ( born 1878) with John Robichaux's band as 'a wonderful bass player.' He also recalls Bolden's bassist Jim Johnson, 'an older guy than me'.

        I speculate that N.O. bass style was communally 'invented' and probably developed naturally from the switch from primarily arco playing to primarily pizzicato. I have never found a definitive account of this transition. Anybody got anything ?

            While I can't really add anything to the legends surrounding the genesis of New Orleans bass playing, I'd like to point out that Jimmy Johnson actually recorded with Don Albert in 1935 or thereabouts. Apparently the first recorded samples of New Orleans bass playing are Ed Garland with Kid Ory in 1922. The recent Off the Record New Orleans double CD has all six titles and on some, the string bass can be heard, albeit faintly.

                      Is Al Morgan playing bass on brother Sam s record of Steppin on the Gas ? That has a particularly propulsive bass--it really moves that performance along.

                        Is Al Morgan playing bass on brother Sam's record of "Steppin' on the Gas"? That has a particularly propulsive bass--it really moves that performance along. So does Steve Brown on Goldkette's "My Pretty Girl" and the earliest take of Paul Whiteman's "From Monday On." (Two later takes substitute a tuba, and they're not nearly as exciting.)

                                Recently, someone in other jazz email list reported that several tracks on discs
                                1 & 2 of the Armstrong Decca Mosaic have been transfered at the wrong speed,
                                what makes it a difference of up to a half tone.

                                As I don't have that boxed set yet, could anybody confirm this?

                                (sorry if this has been discussed before or it is common knowledge, but I made a
                                quick search through the group's archives and could find anything related)

                                Best regards,
                                Agustín Pérez

                                  Augustin - It might be useful to know which tracks you think are suspect. For the most part, I've found that Armstrong tending to play tunes in the written key. So anyone with a sheet music collection could confirm the correct key for various pieces.

                                  Cheers,
