Beside A Babbling Brook
Original Indiana Five
Feat. Johnny Sylvester
Recorded in Long Island City, New York on May 1st 1923 featuring Johnny Sylvester trumpet, Vincent Grande trombone, Nick Vitalo clarinet & alto sax, Newman Fier piano, Tony Colucci banjo, and Tom Morton drums.
*"Beside A Babbling Brook" was composed by Walter Donaldson, with lyrics by Gus Kahn.
Published in 1923 the song was also recorded that year by pop singer Irving Kaufman accompanied
by "Ben Selvin and his Orchestra".
This selection was the A side of Olympic 1444 recorded in Long Island at one of the "Original Indiana Five's" very first sessions for the label.
The alto saxophone which is often missing from many of the band's recordings is an element added here that's truly a delight. -For this reason the trombone solo work of Vincent Grande is not featured nearly as much.
