  • Mondello is a more common name than Mendello. Toots, the trumpet player, born in New Jersey, was certainly Mendello, not Mondello. You can see his name spelled Mendello on the record labels that I posted. Here is a link to one of them. http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i198/ahaim/mendelloeasy.jpg Of course, there was a Toots Mondello, a clarinet/alto sax player who was with Benny...

  • Thanks to Gina Mendello, Toots Mendello's grandaughter, I was able to provide some biographical information and a photo of Toots Mendello in the Bixography Forum. If interested, read this posting and the thread that follows it. http://www.network54.com/Forum/27140/message/1320695660 Albert Haim http://bixbeiderbecke.com

  • Patrice, The assertions about bixians were so preposterous and so far off, that I focused on the manner they were presented. Howard depicted bixians in a very derogatory manner: a bunch of mindless old men who "are not really interested at all in Armstrong, and knowing nothing and caring less about blues …" This characterization is ridiculous, insulting, and demonstrates ignorance...

  • Howard writes, "The Bixians are alive and well in the States where there is still a large sub-stratum of jazz enthusiasts, though most of them must by now be getting pretty elderly, who are not really interested at all in Armstrong, and knowing nothing and caring less about blues, don¹t really understand the relationship between "their" music and African-American music. Many of...

  • A Bixian is an admirer/follower of Bix. The admiration can take various forms and various degrees of intensity. For example, a Bixian trumpet player is one who plays in the style and manner of Bix. Tom Pletcher and Andy Schumm are first-class Bixian trumpet players. In my case, my admiration/passion for Bix's music led me to create the Bixography website (and satellite sites: the...

  • I wasn't going to get involved in this discussion, mais puisque vous me demandez, Patrice, here it is. Tommer writes, "any white early "Jazz" player is actually imitating the black's culture, like for instance Bix going to see Louis Armstrong to learn from him the Blues/Jazz culture and art basics." First, a brief statement on the white "Jazz" [why the quotation marks around the...

  • Does anyone know the whereabouts (or another email address) of Scott? Ordinarily, he is fairly prompt in responding and taking action on the problems with the RHJ archives. I have not heard from him for quite a while in spite of repeated messges alerting him to the problems. Albert --- In RedHotJazz@^$1, "Albert Haim" wrote: > > I guess I spoke too soon.

  • I guess I spoke too soon. Gilbert alerted me that the music files no longer play. Apparently, the machine *actively* refuses the connection. I'll notify Scott again. Albert --- In RedHotJazz@^$1, "Albert Haim" wrote: > > The files are available again. > > Albert >
