      The trumpets can be heard in unison near the start of 'Spanish Mama'. When
      they re-enter, Graham is playing lead and Keppard second although they
      nicely interchange.

      Graham was no negligible player and well-matched with Keppard and there has
      always been confusion over identification on the Cooks. Rudi Blesh even used
      a misidentification of Elwood as Keppard to declare Keppard had influenced
      Bix.

      Elwood was also a wa-wa specialist and most of the wa-wa on the Cooks is
      his. On 'Scissor-Grinder Joe', 21 Jan 1924, the opening rather duwacky
      wa-wa is him and it is also he who returns in wa-wa from about 1-55 to 2-15
      when Keppard emerges also, unusually for him, in wa-wa, but much better.
