Breakin' The Leg
Warner's Seven Aces
Feat. George McCullough
Recorded in Atlanta, Georgia on October 1st 1925 featuring J T Bourne and Tom Brannon or Jim O'Neal trumpets, Russ Crump or Don McIlvaine trombone, C J Buckner and Ed Pritchett clarinet & alto sax, Ralph Bennett clarinet, violin, & leader, George McCullough clarinet, soprano, tenor, & baritone sax, Ed Lally piano, Bob Pittman banjo, George MacMillan tuba, and M C "Shucks" Park drums.
*"Breakin' The Leg" was composed by J. Turner Layton, with lyrics by Henry Creamer.
Ralph Bennett assumed leadership of "Warner's Seven Aces" and Ed Lally replaced Byron H. Warner as the band's pianist in the Fall of 1925.
Produced at the group's third session for Columbia this little known title penned by J. Turner Layton contains some really great ensemble work boasting enthusiastic solos especially on the part of their baritone saxophonist George McCullough, as well as on the alto saxophones played by C J Buckner and Ed Pritchett.
There is a fine, Miff Mole-inspired trombone solo on this record also worthy of mention.
