New Orleans Bootblacks - Columbia 14337 (1926)

Lil Hardin Armstrong set up recording dates for what basically was Louis Armstrong's Hot Five/Seven ensemble with Columbia Records...only one problem, Louis was tethered to a contract with OKeh.

So, she tapped George Mitchell to replace Satch on cornet. More information on him here.

Here are two of the sides that were waxed in Chicago on July 14, 1926.
