Thanks to Atticus Jazz for the You Tube
Well, it’s Valentines Day so why not play the song I’m in Love Again, an early one written by Cole Porter? This was a Red Nichols band called the Six Hottentots. Red Nichols seemed to have a new name for his group on every record session, but he made a lot of great records in his era. The session was from 1927, and consisted of Red Nichols, cornet; Miff Mole trombone; Jimmy Dorsey clarinet and alto sax; Arthur Schutt, piano; Joe Tarto on tuba; Vic Berton, drums; and Irving Kaufman sang the vocal. Recording Date March 23, 1927. Atticus Jazz has a tremendous photo collection from the era. These photos are of Carole Lombard (1908-1942.) She was primarily an actress in “screwball” comedies. Tragically, she died in a plane crash while promoting World War II war bonds. For more on Carole Lombard, see here.
