In 1931 when Joe "King" Oliver's health deteriorated to the point where he could no longer lead his band or perform, his nephew Dave Nelson assumed control of his famous Orchestra. An extremely talented trumpeter in his own right, Nelson went on to direct the group for their next two recording sessions held in June and again in January (billed as "Dave's Harlem Highlights") of that year.
