Stomp Time Blues
Jasper Taylor & His
State Street Boys
Feat. Freddie Keppard
Recorded in Chicago during January of 1927 featuring Freddie Keppard cornet, Eddie Ellis trombone, Johnny Dodds clarinet, Tiny Parham piano, and Jasper Taylor washboard & leader.
*"Stomp Time Blues" was composed by Tiny Parham.
Well Known for his impeccable muted cornet abilities Freddie Keppard leaves the plunger alone in this driven performance with Jasper Taylor's band. For the most part the other musicians mainly play a supporting role to the pairs' instrumental high jinks other than a couple of brief fills from Eddie Ellis toward the end. -Matt Chauvin
Keppard was the most gifted and technically accomplished of the early New Orleans "horn men". His huge, powerful sound, complemented by phenomenal range and fluency, were the envy of many cornetists. Here we can enjoy the product of what must have been a good day for Fred (he was off the booze at the time) and probably equals the quality of his playing of the 1905-15 period. -Henry Davis
