J.C. Higginbotham

(May 11th 1906 - May 26th 1973)

Jack Higginbotham was born in the Atlanta suburb of Social Circle, Georgia in 1906 the youngest of fourteen children. He would be among those early trombone innovators to play melodic lines helping to solidify its place as a solo instrument in jazz. His highly expressive and swinging style can be identified on hundreds of recordings beginning in the 1920's with King Oliver, Luis Russell, and later Red Allen and Louis Armstrong.
