Jabbo Smith's Rhythm Aces
Feat. "Banjo Ikey" Robinson
This record was cut in Chicago on January 29th 1929 with Jabbo Smith trumpet, Omer Simeon clarinet, Cassino Simpson piano, Ikey Robinson banjo, and Hayes Alvis tuba.
*"Jazz Battle" was composed by Cladys "Jabbo" Smith.
Although Jabbo Smith made his best recordings over the course of a single year, they rank among the most exciting and technically advanced of the period.
Listeners often compare him to Louis Armstrong as a possible competitor, and its true that the two men both possessed an astounding command over their horns, yet their stylistic approach differed greatly.
