Feat. Joe Garland


Recorded in New York City on June 4th 1929 featuring Ward Pinkett and Jack Wilson (or Langston Curl) trumpets, Jimmy Archey trombone, Charlie Holmes clarinet, soprano, & alto sax, F Eugene Mikell tenor sax, Joe Steele piano & director, Percy Richardson banjo, Joe Garland baritone sax, Fred Smith tuba, and Gerald Hobson drums.

*"Coal Yard Shuffle" was composed by Joe Steele.

Pianist, Joe Steele was a graduate from the New England Conservatory for which he was tagged with the nickname "Professor." He appeared on the earliest recordings made by Ella Fitzgerald along with drummer Chick Webb. During the mid to the late '20's Steele started playing with the "Savoy Bearcats", providing him an opportunity to record, and by 1929 was leading his own successful New York based Orchestra.
