Feat. Evelyn Preer


This side was recorded in New York City by Clarence Williams' "Bottomland Orchestra" on June 7th 1927 with Evelyn Preer vocals, Ed Anderson and Henry "Red" Allen trumpets, Charlie Irvis trombone, Albert Socarras soprano sax, Clarence Williams piano, Cyrus St. Clair tuba, and Floyd Casey drums.

In 1927, Clarence Williams focused his talents on theater with "Bottomland," a musical staring his wife Eva Taylor, and Sara Martin that he scripted, produced, and wrote most of the music for, himself.

Unfortunately despite plenty of hard work and a talented cast "Bottomland" was a flop. It opened on June 27th 1927 and only ran for twenty-one shows at the Princess Theater on 104 West 39th Street in New York.
