THE EARLY YEARS

There are no recordings left from the early New Orleans jazz bands. However, there may have been a cylinder recording by Buddy Bolden (Louisiana Phonograph Company?), probably around the turn of the century . (See ”New Orleans Music” Vol 13, No 4 ”The Bolden Issue”).  If this is correct, it must be the very first jazz recording (although the word ”jazz” was not used until around 1915. Tom Brown claimed that he was the first to use the word.)

Buddy Bolden Band

Possible personnel:

Buddy Bolden co, George Baquet cl, Alphonse Picou cl, Frankie Dusen tb, Bob Lyons b, rest unknown.

CHICKEN

 

George Baquet recalled recording in 1912 (Charters p. 133) He played with the Superior Orchestra from 1906 to 1914 – could they have recorded??

Freddie Keppard’s Original Creole Orchestra was offered an opportunity to record for Victor in New York 1915, but the offer was declined,  of reasons not quite clear.

Buddy Petit

Buddy Petit co, Phil Coycault cl, Roy Evans dr.

Six copies of this record from 1920 existed but none has been located. (Charters p. 133)

Dee Dee Pierce

Dee Dee Pierce co, Emile Barnes cl, rest unknown.(C:a 1925).

Home recording. ”It was cut on an aluminium disc and is no longer playable”. (Charters p. 133)

There were no permanent recording studios in New Orleans during the first decades of jazz, so the first New Orleans bands to record had to go to New York: Original Dixieland Jazz Band   in 1917 and New Orleans Jazz Band (with pianist Jimmy Durante) in 1918-19. Spike’s Seven Pods of Pepper  (with Mutt Carey and Kid Ory) recorded in Los Angeles 1922.

THE TWENTIES

Some of the big recording companies made  ”field trips” to New Orleans between 1924 and 1929, where the portable recording equipment was put up in music stores or other places. 129 sides were recorded during the 13 visits, only 35 of them by black or creole bands: Fate Marable’s Society Syncopators , Papa Celestin’ s Original Tuxedo Jazz Orchestra , Sam Morgan , Louis Dumaine , Armand Piron and the mixed Jones and Collins band. There is also a 1925 OKeh recording with Punch Miller (his very first), who accompanied the vaudeville singers Billy and Mary Mack . Some blues artists were also accompanied by N.O. jazz musicians.

DIRTY RAG (?)   OK 40337, Topaz TPZ 1049

Norman Brownlee’s son, Henry F. Brownlee, gives interesting information about the band at ”Big Bands Database Homepage”:

One of the early ”white” jazz bands. This early dixieland group is not remembered today, but was well known and very popular in the 1920’s. In private correspondence, Henry Brownlee, Norman’s son, has mentioned that on ”Dirty Rag”, recorded December 1925 in New Orleans; Okeh # 40337), the sidemen consisted of: (My father, Norman Brownlee, Pianist, had several top-notch sidemen in his band.) * Sharkey Bonano, cornet. Emmett Hardy was the band’s first Cornetist. But, Emmett, a dim, legendary figure, never recorded and died at the young age of 22. His playing is reputed to have influenced Bix Beidebecke (who died at age 28). After Emmett Hardy died, he was followed by trumpeters Wingy Manone, Johnny Wiggs, Sharkey Bonano (who was on the Okeh recording of ”Peculiar” and ”Dirty Rag” recorded December 1925 in New Orleans; Okeh # 40337) * On trombone was mainly Tom Brown and George Barth (who doubled on Sax and Bass. * Mellophone was played by Billy Braun who doubled on piano. * Bill Eastwood was on Banjo, doubled on Guitar and Baritone Sax. (”but the record was cut with my uncle, Behrman French, on banjo”.) * On clarinet he had Larry Shields; then after Larry went to New York, his brother Harry Shields came in (he is on the record). * Alto/Baritone Sax was played by Hal Jordy. * On drums was Alonzo Crombie. Dad said — ”you start a piece, go out and eat lunch, and when you got back Al Crombie’s beat was as steady as when you left! Like a metronome!”

”He had other sidemen, of course, over the years. Also, most of the members doubled on other instruments, Dad also played string bass; Eastwood played piano; almost all played saxophone (Dad played Tenor Sax as well).”

”My Dad played a short stint on String Bass with Paul Whiteman when he was in town. And, he was a good friend of Jack Teagarden. I remember when I was about 10, Jack’s band came to New Orleans to play the old St. Charles Theater and Dad took me to hear them. Jack spotted him in the audience and made him go up on stage – they greeted each other like lost brothers! I was in awe! Of course I got to meet him and his brother Charlie. The Dorsey Brothers said Dad had the first ”Swing” Band in America. Dad’s String Bass is in the New Orleans Jazz Museum.” This entry on the wonderful Norman Brownlee Orch., was graciously submitted by his son Henry. F. Brownlee.
