Jones & Collins Astoria Hot Eight
Feat. Lee Collins
This number was recorded in New Orleans on November 15th 1929 featuring Lee Collins trumpet, David Jones tenor sax, Sidney Arodin clarinet, Theodore Purnell alto sax, Joe Robichaux piano, Emmanuel Sayles banjo, Al Morgan bass, and Joe Strode Raphael drums.
*"Duet Stomp" was composed by Sidney Arodin and David Jones.
New Orleans native Lee Collins played in brass bands as a teenager alongside Louis Armstrong, Papa Celestin, and Zutty Singleton. He moved to Chicago in 1924 replacing Louis Armstrong in King Oliver's band. During this period he would also play with Jelly Roll Morton for a time, but the two had a falling out when Collins claimed that Morton had stolen the song "Fish Tail Blues" from him. Lee Collins subsequently returned to New Orleans in the late '20's.
