Buddy Bolden Tribute (Part 2)
New Orleans All Stars
"Honoring King Bolden"
Art Ford's Jazz Party's Christmas Eve 1958 broadcast tribute to Buddy Bolden continues with performances of the following: "Careless Love", "Bucket Has A Hole", and "High Society".
Consisting of New Orleans musicians who played in the same era as Bolden the band features Punch Miller trumpet & vocals, Peter Bocage trumpet, Louis Nelson trombone, George Lewis clarinet, Alphonse Picou clarinet & violin, "Sweet" Emma Barrett piano, George Guesnon banjo & vocals, Alcide Pavageau double bass, and Paul Barbarin drums.
Alphonse Picou plays the violin for much of this appearance and only switches to the clarinet to perform his famous rendering of "High Society".
Though credited as the man who developed the highly improvisational style of ragtime known as jazz today, Buddy Bolden was never presented the opportunity to be recorded.
-For this reason we can only speculate as to how he might have sounded.
