”I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate” Leona Williams And Her Jazz Band 1922

The recording of this record on the Columbia label took place in New York City on September 19, 1922. Many famous Jazz musicians backed up Williams on her recordings, including Jimmy Durante on Piano, Miff Mole on Trombone, and Phil Napoleon on trumpet, or The Original Memphis Five if you wish. The release of the record did not appear in the newspaper until November 17, 1922.
