Underrated New Orleans trumpeter Lee Collins played in Pops Foster's Young Eagles band as a teenager. In 1924 he traveled North to Chicago to replace Louis Armstrong in King Oliver's Band. Collins would return to the Crescent City by the end of the 1920's following an argument over song ownership with his once close friend Jelly Roll Morton.
