Down Town Fling
The Three Barbers
"Lytell's First Solo Recording"
Recorded in New York City on February 8th 1926 featuring Jimmy Lytell clarinet, Frank Signorelli piano,
and unknown guitar.
*"Down Town Fling" was composed by Frank Signorelli and Castro Carrazo.
Jimmy Lytell was an underrated New York clarinetist when he first appeared on record as a member of small jazz assemblies including the "Original Indiana Five" (1921), the "Original Dixieland Jazz Band" (1922-24), and the "Original Memphis Five" (1922-25).
But then in 1926, Lytell started being featured on record as a soloist initially billed as "The Three Barbers".
Inevitably these early attempts showcasing Jimmy Lytell's incredible talent would eventually lead to sides released under his own name.
