Feat. Castor McCord


Recorded in New York City on April 4th 1930 featuring Jack Purvis trumpet & leader, J C Higginbotham trombone, Castor McCord tenor sax, Frank Froeba piano, Will Johnson guitar, Adrian Rollini bass sax, and Charlie Kegley drums.

*"Poor Richard" was composed by Jack Purvis.

The tenor sax solo on this record strongly resembles the work of Coleman Hawkins at the time who has been listed in past discographies. More recent research suggests that it might have been either Castor McCord or his twin brother Ted. Castor was heavily featured with "Mill's Blue Rhythm Band" a little after this, and his solos sound pretty identical, as he was definitely a Hawkins disciple. -Dan Weinstein
