I do not have the ability like some who can recognize musicians by ear.
Does anyone have a clue as to who these sides might be by?
Maple Leaf Rag has imprinted in the dead wax..."JMS-1" while Terrible Blues has..."MLB-121."
Edit: Many thanks to Jim VanDrisse & Yves François for identifying the personnel:
Maple Leaf Rag: Lu Watters (tp) Turk Murphy (tb) Bob Helm (cl) Paul Lingle (p) Pat Patton (bj) San Francisco, CA., 1939
San Francisco, March 29, 1942
(J.M.J.) The "JMS-1" imprinted in the dead wax very well may indicate the Maple Leaf Rag released in 1941 by Lu Watters Yerba Buena Jazz Band on Jazz Man Records #1 (JM-1)? They also had an unreleased Terrible Blues version in 1942.ReplyDelete
