New Orleans Wanderers
Feat. George Mitchell
Recorded in Chicago on July 13th 1926 featuring George Mitchell cornet, Kid Ory trombone, Johnny Dodds clarinet, Lil Hardin-Armstrong piano, Joe Walker alto sax, Johnny St Cyr banjo, and Baby Dodds drums.
*"Papa Dip" was composed by Louis Armstrong.
This was basically the same band as "Louis Armstrong's Hot Five" except that Armstrong was replaced by George Mitchell. It's striking to think that at the time George Mitchell, Johnny Dodds, Kid Ory and Johnny St. Cyr were already rehearsing with Jelly Roll Morton. Two months later they took part in the most famous of his "Red Hot Pepper's" sessions.
The "New Orleans Wanderers" only released four sides all produced on the same day.
Yet, although they only cut four tunes as the "Wanderers" they would record four more under the name of the "New Orleans Bootblacks" two on this date and two the following day, July 14th 1926.
