Mound City Blue Blowers
Feat. Coleman Hawkins
This side was cut in New York City on November 14th 1929 with Red McKenzie comb, Pee Wee Russell clarinet, Glenn Miller trombone, Coleman Hawkins tenor sax, Jack Bland guitar, Eddie Condon banjo, Al Morgan bass, and Gene krupa drums.
*"Hello Lola" is credited to Red McKenzie.
According to Coleman Hawkins this tune was named after the girlfriend of Gordon Means an affluent character who befriended and often aided Red and Condon. She must have been quite popular, Max Kaminsky remembers the same girl was also once a flame of Pee Wee Russell's who reportedly cut up his clothes during an argument.
