Carolina Cotton Pickers - Perfect 7-06-66 (1937)

Here we have a territory band out of Charleston, South Carolina. It started as a touring group culling members from the Jenkins' Orphanage band.

They seem to have recorded 14 sides over two days in March of 1937 but only five were issued. There is also a Vocalion field recording from a year earlier that is believed to be William 'Cat' Anderson's debut cut. (It can be found on Jazz Oracle's A Gift From The President - a cd included with any other cd purchase direct from the company.)

John Williams, Thad Seabrooks, Joseph Williams t / Leroy Hardison or Ben Martin, Julius Watson tb / Eugene Earl tb, bb / Booker Starks, Albert 'Pepper' Martin as / Lew Williams, Walter Bash ts / Cliff Smalls p / W.J. Edwards g / Lee Thurman sb / Otis Walker d.

Recorded in Birmingham, AL on March 24, 1937.
