You Ain’t Too Old – Clarence Williams Jug Band

A Red Hot Jazz song recorded Aug. 7, 1933 on Columbia Royal Blue Wax featuring Clarence Williams & His Jug Band. The members of this fantastic scat group are:
Ed Allen – Cornet
Herman Chittison – Piano
Charlie Irvis ? – Trombone
Lonnie Johnson – Guitar
Jimmie McLin – Guitar
Albert Nicholas – Clarinet
Ikey Robinson – Banjo
Cecil Scott Clarinet
Omer Simeon ? – Clarinet, Tenor Saxophone
Willie “The Lion” Smith – Piano
Eva Taylor – Vocals
Clarence Todd – Kazoo, Vocals
Clarence Williams – Piano ?, Jug, Vocals
Willie Williams – Washboard
I could only find 9 different songs that they recorded under this name. They were on three labels, Columbia, Okeh, and Vocalion. Clarence Williams had many bands like others of the day, and a lot of solo work. Some of his other projects were Clarence Williams and his Band ,Clarence Williams’ Blue Five, Clarence Williams’ Blue Seven, Clarence Williams’ Jazz Kings,Clarence Williams’ Novelty Band,Clarence Williams’ Novelty Four, Clarence Williams Trio, Clarence Williams and His Orchestra,
Clarence Williams’ Stompers, Clarence Williams’ Washboard Band, Clarence Williams’ Washboard Five, Clarence Williams’ Washboard Four, Blue Grass Foot Warmers, Dixie Washboard Band, Jamaica Jazzers, Red Onion Jazz Babies, Barrel House Five Orchestra, Clarence Williams’ Jug Band
Clarence Williams and his Bottomland Orchestra, Memphis Jazzers, Seven Gallon Jug Band. Enjoy!
