Don José Havana Orchestra (Cuarteto Machín) / Bennie Moten & His Kansas City Orchestra - Victor 23037 (1929)

What an odd pairing AND it took me a while to figure out who Don José's Havana Orchestra was...and what a nice surprise at that.

Cuarteto Machín: Daniel Sánchez g, v / Yayito Maldonado g / Antonio Machín dir, v / Remberto Lara t.

Recorded in New York on October 6, 1930.


As luck would have it, just came across the following record originally from South America. It has the real name of the group on the label.


Bennie Moten dir / Ed Lewis, Booker Washington c / Thamon Hayes tb / Harlan Leonard cl, ss, as / Jack Washington el, as, bar / Woody Walder cl, ts / Count Basie p / Ira "Buster" Moten pac, 2nd p / Leroy Berry bj / Vernon Page bb / Willie McWashington d / Eddie Durham tb, g.
