Re: [ARSCLIST] "Big Jeb Dooley" -- who was this masked trumpeter
Well you know,most jazz people,historians included,don't take dixieland very seriously,after the 1930s or so.Me,I'd like to learn more about Trinidadian jazz,from the 20s,and 30s.Stuff like Codallo?s Top Hatters Orchestra.Can anybody recommend any good sources of information ? I haven't had the three hundred bucks for the Bear Family box set/book.

wager it's not Doc Severinsen, it's someone old enough to know how to really blow dixieland style.
Any jazz experts ever tackle that "mystery"?
By the way, the liner notes to those LPs are a hoot and even have some jazz history lessons embedded
