Feat. Frank Trumbauer


This recording was produced in New York City on February 6th 1924 by "The Cotton Pickers" featuring Phil Napoleon trumpet, Miff Mole trombone, Frank Trumbauer c-melody sax & leader, and Joe Tarto bass brass.

*"Mishawaka Blues" was composed by Billy Rose, Sheve, and Straight.

The tune successfully recycles a memorable passage from W.C. Handy's classic composition "Yellow Dog Blues".

Recorded at a session held in New York at 799 Seventh Avenue, in room number two, "The Cotton Pickers" kick off 1924 with this memorable up-tempo blues that marked their first release of the year.

Organized by the Brunswick label to emulate the sound of small black combos of the South, "The Cotton Pickers" initially contained a line-up of top white New York jazz musicians of the period. As part of its original line-up this group featured Bennie Krueger and Miff Mole. Then in 1924 Kruger was replace by Frank Trumbauer and the rest of the group (except for Miff) was also re-staffed resulting in a newer more up-to-date sound.
