Re: [RedHotJazz] 7 Pods of Pepper, NORK, and Johnny Miller files
- Hi Folks,
There are a number of 'southern' players who are overlooked and Sharkey Bonano is one of them. He enjoyed a long career with his last recordings being made in 1969 or 1970. I don't think amy of us need worry whether Rapollo or Ropollo is correct - it's the music that counts and we all know his work.

All three of these uploads to the Links section have the advantage of the late Verne Buland's digital remastering. They're in the .OGG format, which most playback programs can handle nowadays.
A few bars into the first of them, "Ory's Creole Trombone", you hear a brief skip in the original 78rpm--I think that's what it was--but nothing else disturbs this fine example of New Orleans ensemble counterpoint.
In the NORK's "Tiger Rag" the saxophone-music is just a subdued mumbling, and one can hear everything that clarinetist Rappolo--excuse me, "Roppolo"--is doing.
Finally, if you wonder why folks in New Orleans thought that Sharkey Bonano was hot stuff, his work here on one of the Johnny Miller sides might give you an idea.
