I've Got A Song For Sale
Original Memphis Five
Feat. Miff Mole
This recording was made in New York City on October 4th 1923 featuring Phil Napoleon trumpet & leader, Miff Mole trombone, Jimmy Lytell clarinet, Frank Signorelli piano, and Jack Roth drums.
*"I've Got A Song For Sale (That My Sweetie Turned Down)" was composed by Jack Nelson.
Founded in 1917 by Frank Signorelli and Phil Napoleon the "Original Memphis Five" also made records alternately appearing as "The Cotton Pickers" and "Ladd's Black Aces".
In addition to introducing some top New York jazz talent to early record audiences this group played a very important roll in recorded jazz development filling the void between New Orleans groups like the "Original Dixieland Jass Band" and Northern bands of a non-Dixie origin who often cut jazz renditions of popular songs.
