"Acing the Black Bottom"


This side as recorded in Atlanta, Georgia on November 1st 1926 featuring J T Bourne and Tom Brannon trumpets, Russ Crump trombone, C J Buckner and Ed Pritchett clarinet & alto sax, Ralph Bennett clarinet, violin, & leader, George McCullough clarinet, soprano, & tenor sax, Ed Lally piano, Bob Pittman banjo, George MacMillan tuba, and M C "Shucks" Park drums.

*"Don't Take That Black Bottom Away" was composed by Sam Coslow, Andy Britt, and Harry Link.

The "Black Bottom" was first danced by Ann Pennington in the Broadway show "George White's Scandals." The tune along with its corresponding dance became a smash hit across the nation, so popular in fact that they would spawn numerous spin-off songs like this one.

(The young flapper seen in this video performing the original Black Bottom dance is identified as Miss Mildred Melrose, in footage extracted from a British Pathe preview).
