Feat. Rupe Biggadike


This recording was produced in Memphis, Tennessee on February 4th 1928 featuring James Migliori and Estes Monasco cornets, Ken Herlin trombone, Elly Bellare clarinet & alto sax, Rupe Biggadike piano, Bob Cooke banjo & guitar, and Snooks Friedman drums & leader.

*"Hold It Still" was composed by Rupe Biggadike.

Snooks Friedman's career as a drummer began in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee during the Summer of 1923 performing with the "Ole Miss Jesters" when he was seventeen. After going on tour with bands led by Meyer Davis and Hip Bennett he returned in 1926 and formed his own "Memphis Stompers". The ultra-versatile ensemble, equally adept at playing as a hot jazz band or dance orchestra, were booked at many major theaters on the East Coast including six months at the Roseland ballroom.
