Make Me Know It
Fess Williams & His
Royal Flush Orchestra
Feat. Professor Williams
Recorded in New York City on May 24th 1926 featuring George Temple trumpet, David 'Jelly' James trombone, Fess Williams clarinet, alto sax, director, & vocals, Perry Smith clarinet & tenor sax, Henry Duncan piano, Ollie Blackwell banjo, and Ralph Bedell drums.
*"Make Me Know It (If You Mean What You Say)" was written by Fess Williams and Harry D. Squires.
He wasn't merely a band director or a flashy clarinet and saxophone soloist, Stanley "Fess" Williams had "real personality" a fact which is very evident on any record that features his singing.
Playing in a gas pipe style comparable to that of Ted Lewis the good professor's playing stands as an excellent example of highly accomplished slap tongue and circular breathing techniques.
