"The Vaudevillian Piano Man"


Recorded in New York City on July 30th 1923 featuring Charles A Matson piano & director, with unknown cornet, clarinet, trombone, alto sax, tenor sax, banjo, tuba, and drums.

*"'Tain't Nobody's Biz-ness If I Do" was composed by Porter Grainger and Everett Robbins. This rendition introduces "Achin Hearted Blues" composed by Clarence Williams, Clarence Johnson, and Spencer Williams.

As an active pianist/arranger in New York during the mid-'20s Charles A. Matson served as accompanist to various blues singers including Mamie and Clara Smith. His band recorded as "Matson's Lucky Seven" in early 1924 were similar sounding enough to suggest that some of the same personnel may have been present for this session as well including John Masefield trombone, Ernest Elliott clarinet, and Sam Speed banjo.
