  • What's the point of having a second cornet man if you're not going to make use of him ? Joe Oliver had three choruses of hard all-out solo blowing coming up: of course he took a spell beforehand ! But this has been well-known for over 90 years… On 25/06/2014, at 10:52 PM, PETER GERLER pgerler@^$1 [RedHotJazz] wrote: Well, as for the Okeh session, I do find it interesting that...

  • Really ??? George Lewis was influenced by Woody Herman, you mean. Lewis's "St. Philip Street Break Down" is only a simplified, bowdlerised version of Herman's Chips Boogie Woogie (1940).

  • The late Jules Gallé, clarinetist with the Brunies Brothers band from Biloxi, Mississippi, knew Arodin well. He told me in the early 1980s: (1) that the melody of Up a Lazy River was most definitely composed by Arodin and was in fact derived from an original practice exercise used regularly by Arodin as a warm-up; (2) that Arodin's original title for the piece was "Lazy Nigger...

  • What have Ory's birthplace and his age when he moved to New Orleans got to do with the poster in question ? I know he played the trombone righthanded : didn't I say the picture of him was mirrored ? You're quite correct in describing him as "a smallish, dapper man" and so is the man on the left, which you'll realise if you examine the perspective carefully. The drawing has been...

  • The "left-handed" trombonist is Kid Ory, mirrored. All the musicians on this poster have been badly drawn from photographs. The poster is worthless, except as a curio.

  • Yes Dave, it's Percy labelled as Punch. L to R, the trumpets are Percy G. Humphrey, Charlie Love and Ernest "Punch" Miller (in the check shirt). the lead trumpet is Percy. What's always amused me about this sequence is Alphonse Picou telling Armand Hug how to play piano.

  • Thanks, Bob. I can't find my copy of /King Joe Oliver/. That quote is a bit odd, isn't it ? Filhé was 52 in 1925, which is hardly old. And as for having "an understanding with Joe that he would leave when his ear started to go" --- from these words you'd think they'd been playing together for a few decades instead of a few months. Definitely a strange choice of words by the...
