Feat. Professor Williams


This side was produced in New York City on July 10th 1930 featuring George Temple and John Brown trumpets, David 'Jelly' James trombone, Bobby Holmes clarinet & alto sax, Fess Williams alto sax, vocals, & leader, Ralph Brown or Felix Gregory alto sax, Perry Smith clarinet & tenor sax, Walter 'Fats' Pichon piano, Ollie Blackwell banjo, Emanuel Casamore bass brass, and Ralph Bedell drums.

*"Playing My Saxophone" was composed by Stanley "Fess" Williams.

As a celebrated bandleader in both New York and Chicago Professor Stanley "Fess" Williams was constantly on the move from the mid-1920's up until the early 1930's.

His somewhat antiqued style of novelty saxophone playing (even by 1920's standards) was often delivered at an increased tempo as if to reflect the Professor's hyper-busy work schedule.
