"The Jazzola Six"


This side was cut in New Orleans on March 17th 1924 featuring Johnny Bayersdorffer cornet & leader, Tom Brown trombone, Nunzio Scalioni clarinet, Johnny Miller piano, Steve Loyacano banjo, and Leo Adde drums.

Johnny Bayersdorffer's "Jazzola Novelty Orchestra" or "Jazolla Six", were a white band which was formed in 1918 in response to the great success of the "Original Dixieland Jass Band".

This was the first of only two sides ever recorded by the band.

Johnny Bayersdorffer assembled his first band in New Orleans when he was still a high school student and rapidly built a solid reputation for himself playing for the cities elite at resorts on the shores of Lake Pontchartrain. By the time he finally got to make records in 1924 the members of his band had changed considerably. As a local cornetist in high demand Bayersdorffer also moonlighted with other bands including those led by the famous clarinetist Tony Parenti.
