Ben Pollack & His Orchestra - Victor 21184 (1927)

Went after this one for W.C. Handy's Memphis Blues (Check out the site for Mr. Handy's Blues: A Musical Documentary) and got a surprise on the flipside (Waitin' For Katie) eighteen year old Benny Goodman on trumpet!

According to Jazz Oracle's Ben Pollack Volume 1's liner notes by John Wilby, Goodman gives the two bar introduction to Jimmy McPartland's cornet solo.

Ben Pollack dir, d / Jimmy McPartland, Frank Quartell, Al Harris c / Glenn Miller tb, arr / Benny Goodman t, cl, as / Gil Rodin as / Larry Binyon ts, f / Vic Breidis p / Dick Morgan bj, g / Harry Goodman bb / unknown trio v.
