Feat. Roy Evans


This recording was made in New York City on April 9th 1930 featuring Roy Evans vocals, Mannie Klein trumpet, Tommy Dorsey trombone, Benny Goodman clarinet & alto sax, Babe Russin tenor sax, Adrian Rollini goofus & bass sax, Rube Bloom piano, unknown banjo & guitar, and Stan King drums.

*"Bessie Couldn't Help It" was composed by Byron H. Warner, J.L. Richmond, and Charles Bayha.

Louis Armstrong also made a great record of this song with Luis Russell's band in support that features J.C. Higginbotham shining in three separate solos. It was also the last song that Bix Beiderbecke ever recorded, with Hoagy Carmichael's Orchestra, in two different takes. Bessie got around! -Daniel Weinstein
