Albert Socarras & His Cubanacan Orchestra - Brunswick 7490 (1935)

Born in Cuba in 1908, Alberto Socarras is credited for having recorded the first jazz flute solo which took place in July, 1927. As a sideman with Clarence Williams' Orchestra, they cut Shooting The Pistol issued on Paramount 12517.

Here's one of two records Socarras made in New York for Brunswick under his own name. I've yet to find a personnel listing and recording date.
