>> The Louisiana Five first recorded Yelping Hound Blues as a 12"Emerson.

>> Russell claimed that Nunez was the best jazz clarinetist in the world. By 
>> 1905, he was playing with Papa Jack Laine's band but in 1916 left for 
>> Chicago with Stein's Dixie Jass Band, later to be renamed the Original 
>> Dixieland Jazz Band. Before their first recording, he left to join Tom 
>> Brown's band until he, with drummer Anton Lada left to form the Louisiana 
>> Five. Trombonist Harry Raderman, born in 1883 was a prolific recording 
>> artist but very little is known about the musicians in his band. Pianist 
>> Vincent Lopez's first band was formed with clarinetist Billy Hamilton. 
>> Tommy Gott-t/ Harold Geiser-tb/ Tony White-d was the rest of the 
>> ensemble. I have included two titles listed in Rust's Jazz Records - 
>> Patches and Bo-La-Bo. Born in 1878, Julius Lenzberg was musical director 
>> at B.F.Keith's Riverside Theatre by 1918 and was the pit orchestra for 
>> the Broadway musical Nikki in 1931. Saxophonist Rudy Wiedoeft performs 
>> the challenging "Saxema". He later recorded this at a slower tempo for 
>> Victor I imagine to enable musicians to learn the piece. The Tuxedo Dance 
>> Orchestra's first recording was Mary -included in volume one of this set. 
>> It seems that the Dorsey Brothers recorded much later with this band but 
>> little else is known, but Harry Reser directed some sides around 
>> 1924.Recoerded in 1920 The Three Vagrants was one of the earliest 
>> ensembles to feature the guitar. Nicolas Orlando recorded a number of

>> Edison was one of the few companies to use a permanent stylus in their 
>> Phonographs. Pathe used a sapphire ball for their vertical cut/hill and 
>> dale recordings, but the width of the groove, they didn't allow for as 
>> much time as the Edisons. Thomas Edison himself claimed that one of his 
>> records could be played 1,000 times with no wear. In volume one liner 
>> notes I talked about the issue of rumble due to the outside swelling of 
>> the organic core of Diamond Disc records with exposure to moisture and 
>> air. I had tried years ago to eliminate the rumble by slowing the 
>> transfer so that the cartridge had time to move with the irregularities 
>> and reduce the rumble, but found that the bass frequenies were 
>> compromised. The answer was adding additional mass to my cartridge 
>> assembly, and adjusting tracking weight to compensate for the additional 
>> weight. Because of inertia, the addional mass stabilizes the cartridge, 
>> resulting in smoother bass response.The process was further enhanced 
>> because of the Pickering 190D tone arm that I use that has no vertical 
>> motion aside from the very light assembly holding the cartridge. When the 
>> whole arm has to move vertically, as in a regular type tone arm, the 
>> enertia will cause the rumble to be recorded. It is said that the 
>> Broadway Dance Orchestra is a pseudonym for Vincent Lopez - but also have 
>> information citing an augmented Original Memphis Five. Hazay Natzy's 
>> Biltmore Hotel Orchestra was first directed by Natzy himself, in 1917 but 
>> direction was taken over by Jack Green. Featuring William Scotti on ts, 
>> little else is known about this band, which recorded extensively for 
>> Pathe, Columbia, Emerson,Okeh, and Gennett, up till 1925. Don Parker was 
>> a well known soprano and alto sax player from New York, recording for 
>> Pathe and Edison till 1924. He played also with the Original Dixieland 
>> Jazz Band.

>> This album features two very early Leedy vibraphone Lou Chiha "Friscoe" 
>> recordings from 1924. As a collector, I have only found British 
>> electrical recordings of this instrument, by Ray Starita dating from 
>> 1930. However, it would have been the later generation of vibes - with 
>> the damper pedal . They both depended on an electric motor driving the 
>> butterfly valve, creating the tremolo. First developed in 1921, it used 
>> steel bars and had no sustain pedal. J.C. Deagan, Inc.'s Chief Tuner, 
>> Henry Schluter, introduced aluminum bars and the pedal in 1927, creating 
>> the instrument as it is structured today. Louis Armstrong used it in 
>> "Song Of The Islands" in 1929. The title that inspired this re-visit to a 
>> project that started about 20 years ago with a shorter compilation was 
>> "There's A Bend At The End Of The Swanee" By Kaplan's Melodists. I didn't 
>> have that title and sourced the track from my collegue Ben Roth - he also 
>> incuded Follow The Swallow Back Home - thanks, Ben. The rest of the

>> An electrically recorded Edison !!!!! The odd thing is that the first 
>> electrically recorded Edison I acquired was a cylinder - "Me and the Man 
>> In The Moon" by Vaughn De Leath and recorded in January 1929. It had to 
>> be one of the last cylinders - alas destroyed in the fire at my shop. My 
>> Edison Diamond Discs were stored near the ceiling and although the 
>> sleeves were burning, the Diamond Discs were unscathed. The composition 
>> of Edisons was phenolic - which has a much higher melting point than 
>> shellac. The lateral "Needle Type" records didn't fare so well but I 
>> retrieved the sound from them nevertheless. The "Needle Type" Edisons are 
>> the most hard to find. The last 6 tracks are all Needle Type electrics. 
>> Thomas Edison resisted electrical recording until long after all other 
>> labels had upgraded - aside form the buget columbia series issued on 
>> Harmony, Diva, Velvet Tone etc. It is said that because of his deafness, 
>> his personal phonograph has his teeth marks in it because he clenched his 
>> teeth on the cabinet to hear it. He disliked bass because of his hearing 
>> issues. Jazz pianist Oreste Migliaccio was born in Naples, Italy in 1882 
>> and moved to the U.S. in 1902. He first started composing in 1908, with 
>> the "Gatling Gun Rag." By 1910, he was working as a musician, directing a 
>> band at the "Peek Inn" by the early twenties. By 1926, Oreste and his 
>> Queensland Orchestra graced the stage of the Queensland Ballroom in New 
>> York . Personnel: Frank McNellis-Tom Kells-Irving Peskin-t/ Jack King-tb/ 
>> Don Murray-Jimmy Dorsey-cl/ Hal Stumkoff-ts/ Ralph Esposito-bj/ Joe 
>> Tarto-bb Known vocalists with this band were Vic Hall and Ken Christie. 
>> It is said that Red Nichols-c also played with his band but is not 
>> confirmed. Ralph Esposito's first instument was the violin, and it seems 
>> that he was fairly accomplished as he played "The Flight Of The Bumble 
>> Bee", but his solo in Hello Swanee Hello got my attention, and the solos 
>> throughout the arrangement are first class to my mind.
