Boyd Senter

(November 30th 1898 - June ? 1982)

Born on a farm in Nebraska, Boyd Senter made it his life's mission to become a jazz musician after hearing a record by the "Original Dixieland Jass Band". Beginning his musical studies on piano and playing trumpet for a time he finally settled on reeds favoring the clarinet. Boyd relocated to Chicago where his virtuoso abilities did not go unnoticed and in June of 1923 he appeared on record with "Jelly Roll Morton'sSteamboat Four". Shortly after the session Boyd moved to New York where he made the bulk of his recorded works in 1927 and '28 and came to be billed as "The Jazzologist Supreme". He was often featured playing clarinet in a trio accompanied by Jack Russell and Eddie Lang.
