Bob Zurke

From Wikipedia

Bob Zurke (January 7, 1912 – February 16, 1944) was a significant American jazz pianist, arranger, composer and briefly a bandleader during the Swing Era.

Biography

Born Boguslaw Albert Zukowski in Hamtramck, Michigan, he was already using the name Bob Zurke professionally by the age of 16 when he first recorded with a group led by pioneering female jazz bassist Thelma Terry. At that time, Zurke also began to work as a copyist for the Detroit-based booking agency run by Jean Goldkette. Through the end of 1936, Zurke worked in various Detroit clubs, mostly as a band pianist, and occasionally went on tour with other groups; it was in this period that Zurke developed a long friendship with pianist Marvin Ash, who would later go on to record some of Zurke’s compositions.

At the beginning of 1937, Zurke was hired by bandleader Bob Crosby to fill in for Joe Sullivan, then ailing with tuberculosis. It was with Crosby that Zurke gained notice; he contributed arrangements to the band’s book and was a featured soloist on several numbers, including his arrangement of Meade Lux Lewis‘ Honky Tonk Train Blues, which became a hit. In 1938, Bob Zurke was named the winner in the piano category in the Reader’s Poll from Down Beat and, in the course of Alan Lomax‘ Library of Congress interviews, was singled out by Jelly Roll Morton as the “only one (jazz pianist of the present time) that has a tendency to be on the right track.”

In March 1939 Joe Sullivan returned to the Bob Crosby Orchestra and Zurke subsequently worked with the William Morris Agency to form his own band. They debuted at an RCA Victor recording session in July 1939 as Bob Zurke and his Delta Rhythm Orchestra, recording, among other things, Zurke’s best known original compositions Hobson Street Bluesand Old Tom-Cat on the Keys. Critical and public reception of both the records and the Delta Rhythm Band’s first appearances were initially positive, but Zurke proved to be unreliable, unpredictable and somewhat volatile as a leader, partly due to his alcohol dependency and alleged drug use. The band came to a halt not long after its final RCA Victor session in May 1940, which also proved Zurke’s last visit to the commercial recording studios; afterward Zurke served a jail sentence in Detroit for failing to pay alimony to his first wife, whom he had divorced in the late 1930s.

After a period of wandering from job to job following his release from jail, Zurke remarried and resettled in Los Angeles in late 1941. In August 1942, Zurke began an engagement at the Hangover Club in L.A. that he held until the end of his days. In December 1943, Zurke made one final recording, synchronizing an original piano part to the Walter Lantz cartoon Jungle Jive, one of his most difficult and challenging solos. On February 15, 1944, Bob Zurke collapsed at the Hangover Club and was taken to the hospital; he died the following day of complications of pneumonia aggravated by acute alcohol poisoning—he had just turned 32.

Legacy

While Bob Zurke’s fame did not long outlast him, it was considerable from the time he joined Bob Crosby and his playing was widely admired by his peers and colleagues. According to pianist Norma Teagarden, Zurke had small hands and needed to develop special techniques to adjust for his lack of reach; this led to him developing a technique and style uniquely his own. During his lifetime, Zurke was considered one of the finest white boogie-woogie pianists at a time when such players were few. His ability as an arranger and transcriber helped to put pieces by non-readers into a playable, published form, such as in his transcription of Joe Sullivan’s Little Rock Getaway. Zurke published two folios of jazz piano solos and several sheet music editions of single pieces; in addition to that, 14 original compositions from Zurke are known.

William Manuel “Bill” Johnson (August 10, 1872 – December 3, 1972), was an American jazz musician, considered the father of the “slap” style of string bass playing.

Johnson claimed to have started “slapping” the strings of his bass (a more vigorous technique than the classical pizzicato) after he accidentally broke his bow on the road with his band in northern Louisiana in the early 1910s. Other New Orleans string bass players picked up this style, and spread it across the country with the spread of New Orleans Jazz.

Johnson was founder and manager of the first jazz band to leave New Orleans and tour widely in the 1910s, The Original Creole Orchestra.

In Chicago in the early 1920s he assembled King Oliver’s Creole Jazz Band, considered perhaps the best of the early ensemble style jazz bands. He taught younger Chicago musicians (including Milt Hinton) his “slap” style of string bass playing. He made many fine recordings in Chicago in the late 1920s.

Johnson continued to play with various jazz bands and orchestras into the early 1950s, sometimes working under other names. He was also involved in the import/export business along the USA-Mexico border.

Johnson’s brother Ollie “Dink” Johnson was also a noted musician and his sister Anita Gonzales was common-law wife or perhaps married to Ferdinand “Jelly Roll” Morton during his stays in California.

Bill Johnson died in New Braunfels, Texas, at the age of 100.

Sonny Clay

From Wikipedia

William Rogers Campbell “Sonny” Clay (May 15, 1899, Chapel Hill, Texas – April 13, 1973, Los Angeles) was an American jazz pianist, drummer, and bandleader, who had an unusual impact on the development of Australian jazz.

Clay’s family moved to Phoenix when he was eight years old; he played drums and xylophone early in life. From 1915 he studied piano, playing with Charlie Green and Jelly Roll Morton in Mexico around 1920. He drummer for Reb Spikes in California in 1921, and had his first recording experience backing Camille Allen in 1922. Later that year he played withKid Ory at the Hiawatha Dancing Academy in Los Angeles.

In 1923 he formed his own band, the Eccentric Harmony Six; this ensemble recorded on Vocalion Records as the California Poppies in 1923 and the Stompin’ Six in 1925. He also performed under the band names Plantation Orchestra and Hartford Ballroom Orchestra. His band scored a regular gig broadcasting on radio stations KNX in 1925 and KFI in 1926.

In 1928 Clay took his band on a tour of Australia, with Ivie Anderson (later a vocalist with Duke Ellington) as one of the singers accompanying the orchestra. The group played inSydney and Melbourne to great success, but problems with unions and with venue changes (their initial bookings were on vaudeville stages, but additional dates in dance halls led them into race-related trouble with local authorities) resulted in their gaining some notoriety. As rumors of drug use and miscegenation between the black band members and whitewomen flew, the group was subject to a police raid which became a national press sensation. As a result, Clay and his band were deported and the Australian government resolved to bar the entry of all black musicians into the country, a ban which kept Louis Armstrong from touring the country until 1954.

Upon Clay’s return, he held a residency at the Vernon County Club in Los Angeles, then broke up this band and formed a new one, which counted Teddy Buckner and Les Hite among its members. Clay played solo and led bands until 1941, at which time he led a band as a member of the Special Services Division. He retired from music in the 1940s but returned around 1960 to record solo and play in clubs.

Ferdinand Joseph LaMothe (October 20, 1890 – July 10, 1941),  known professionally as Jelly Roll Morton, was an Americanragtime and early jazz pianistbandleader and composer who started his career in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Widely recognized as a pivotal figure in early jazz, Morton is perhaps most notable as jazz’s first arranger, proving that a genre rooted in improvisation could retain its essential spirit and characteristics when notated.  His composition “Jelly Roll Blues” was the first published jazz composition, in 1915. Morton is also notable for naming and popularizing the “Spanish tinge” (habanera rhythm andtresillo), and for writing such standards as “Wolverine Blues“, “Black Bottom Stomp“, and “I Thought I Heard Buddy Bolden Say”, the latter a tribute to New Orleans personalities from the turn of the 19th century to 20th century.

Reputed for his arrogance and self-promotion as often as recognized in his day for his musical talents, Morton claimed to have invented jazz outright in 1902 — much to the derision of later musicians and critics.[3] The jazz historian, musician, and composer Gunther Schuller says of Morton’s “hyperbolic assertions” that there is “no proof to the contrary” and that Morton’s “considerable accomplishments in themselves provide reasonable substantiation”.  However, the scholar Katy Martin has argued that Morton’s bragging was exaggerated by Alan Lomax in the book Mister Jelly Roll, and this portrayal has influenced public opinion and scholarship on Morton since.


Early life and education

Biography

Morton was born into a Creole of Color family in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood of downtown New OrleansLouisiana. Sources differ as to his birth date: a baptismal certificate issued in 1894 lists his date of birth as October 20, 1890; Morton and his half-sisters claimed he was born on September 20, 1885. His World War I draft registration card showed September 13, 1884, but his California death certificate listed his birth as September 20, 1889. He was born to F. P. Lamothe and Louise Monette (written as Lemott and Monett on his baptismal certificate). Eulaley Haco (Eulalie Hécaud) was the godparent. Hécaud helped choose his christening name of Ferdinand. His parents lived in a common-law marriage and were not legally married. No birth certificate has been found to date.

Ferdinand started playing music as a child, showing early talent. After his parents separated, his mother married a man named Mouton. Ferdinand took his stepfather’s name and anglicized it as “Morton.”

Morton claimed to have written “Jelly Roll Blues” in 1905.

Musical career

At the age of fourteen, Morton began working as a piano player in a brothel (or as it was referred to then, a sporting house.) While working there, he was living with his religious, church-going great-grandmother; he had her convinced that he worked as a night watchman in a barrel factory.

In that atmosphere, he often sang smutty lyrics; he took the nickname “Jelly Roll”,  which was black slang for female genitalia.

After Morton’s grandmother found out that he was playing jazz in a local brothel, she kicked him out of her house. He said:

“When my grandmother found out that I was playing jazz in one of the sporting houses in the District, she told me that I had disgraced the family and forbade me to live at the house… She told me that devil music would surely bring about my downfall, but I just couldn’t put it behind me.”

Tony Jackson, also a pianist at brothels and an accomplished guitar player, was a major influence on Morton’s music. Jelly Roll said that Jackson was the only pianist better than he was.

Touring

Around 1904, Morton also started touring in the American South, working with minstrel shows, gambling and composing. His works “Jelly Roll Blues“, “New Orleans Blues”, “Frog-I-More Rag”, “Animule Dance”, and “King Porter Stomp” were composed during this period. He got toChicago in 1910 and New York City in 1911, where future stride greats James P. Johnson and Willie “The Lion” Smith caught his act, years before the blues were widely played in the North.

In 1912–1914, Morton toured with his girlfriend Rosa Brown as a vaudeville act before settling in Chicago for three years. By 1914, he had started writing down his compositions. In 1915 his “Jelly Roll Blues” was arguably the first jazz composition ever published, recording as sheet music the New Orleans traditions that had been jealously guarded by the musicians. In 1917, he followed bandleader William Manuel Johnson and Johnson’s sister Anita Gonzalez to California, where Morton’s tango “The Crave” made a sensation in Hollywood.

Vancouver

Morton was invited to play a new Vancouver nightclub called The Patricia, on East Hastings Street. The jazz historian Mark Miller described his arrival as “an extended period of itinerancy as a pianist, vaudeville performer, gambler, hustler, and, as legend would have it, pimp”.

Chicago

Morton returned to Chicago in 1923 to claim authorship of his recently published rag, “The Wolverines”, which had become a hit as “Wolverine Blues” in the Windy City. He released the first of his commercial recordings, first as piano rolls, then on record, both as a piano soloist and with various jazz bands.

In 1926, Morton succeeded in getting a contract to record for the largest and most prestigious company in the United States, Victor. This gave him a chance to bring a well-rehearsed band to play his arrangements in Victor’s Chicago recording studios. These recordings by Jelly Roll Morton & His Red Hot Peppers are regarded as classics of 1920s jazz. The Red Hot Peppers featured such other New Orleans jazz luminaries as Kid OryOmer SimeonGeorge MitchellJohnny St. CyrBarney BigardJohnny DoddsBaby Dodds, and Andrew Hilaire. Jelly Roll Morton & His Red Hot Peppers were one of the first acts booked on tours by MCA.[citation needed]

Marriage and family

In November 1928, Morton at the age of 38 married the showgirl Mabel Bertrand in Gary, Indiana.

New York City

They moved that year to New York City, where Morton continued to record for Victor. His piano solos and trio recordings are well regarded, but his band recordings suffer in comparison with the Chicago sides, where Morton could draw on many great New Orleans musicians for sidemen.[citation needed] Although he recorded with the noted musicians clarinetists Omer SimeonGeorge BaquetAlbert NicholasWilton CrawleyBarney BigardLorenzo Tio and Artie Shaw, trumpeters Bubber MileyJohnny Dunn and Henry “Red” Allen, saxophonists Sidney BechetPaul Barnes and Bud Freeman, bassist Pops Foster, and drummers Paul BarbarinCozy Cole and Zutty Singleton, Morton generally had trouble finding musicians who wanted to play his style of jazz. His New York sessions failed to produce a hit.

With the Great Depression and the near collapse of the record industry, Victor did not renew Morton’s recording contract for 1931. Morton continued playing in New York, but struggled financially. He briefly had a radio show in 1934, then took on touring in the band of a traveling burlesque act for some steady income. His compositions were recorded by the musicians Fletcher HendersonBenny Goodman and others, but he received no royalties from these recordings.

Washington, D.C.

In 1935, Morton moved to Washington, D.C., to become the manager/piano player of a bar called, at various times, the “Music Box”, “Blue Moon Inn”, and “Jungle Inn” in theAfrican-American neighborhood of Shaw. (The building that hosted the nightclub stands at 1211 U Street NW.) Morton was also the master of ceremonies, bouncer, and bartender of the club. He lived in Washington for a few years; the club owner allowed all her friends free admission and drinks, which prevented Morton from making the business a success.

In 1938 Morton was stabbed by a friend of the owner and suffered wounds to the head and chest. After this incident his wife Mabel demanded that they leave Washington.

During Morton’s brief residency at the Music Box, the folklorist Alan Lomax heard the pianist playing in the bar. In May 1938, Lomax invited Morton to record music and interviews for the Library of Congress. The sessions, originally intended as a short interview with musical examples for use by music researchers in the Library of Congress, soon expanded to record more than eight hours of Morton talking and playing piano. Lomax also conducted longer interviews during which he took notes but did not record. Despite the low fidelity of these non-commercial recordings, their musical and historical importance have attracted numerous jazz fans, and they have helped to ensure Morton’s place in jazz history.

Lomax was very interested in Morton’s Storyville days and the ribald songs of the time. Although reluctant to recount and record these, Morton eventually obliged Lomax. Because of the suggestive nature of the songs, some of the Library of Congress recordings were not released until 2005.

In his interviews, Morton claimed to have been born in 1885. He was aware that if he had been born in 1890, he would have been slightly too young to make a good case as the inventor of jazz. He said in the interview that Buddy Bolden played ragtime but not jazz; this is not accepted by the consensus of Bolden’s other New Orleans contemporaries. The contradictions may stem from different definitions for the terms ragtime and jazz. These interviews, released in different forms over the years, were released on an eight-CD boxed set in 2005, The Complete Library of Congress Recordings. This collection won two Grammy Awards.  The same year, Morton was honored with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

Later years

When Morton was stabbed and wounded, a nearby whites-only hospital refused to treat him, as the city had racially segregated facilities. He was transported to a black hospital further away.  When he was in the hospital, the doctors left ice on his wounds for several hours before attending to his eventually fatal injury. His recovery from his wounds was incomplete, and thereafter he was often ill and easily became short of breath. Morton made a new series of commercial recordings in New York, several recounting tunes from his early years that he discussed in his Library of Congress interviews.

Worsening asthma sent him to a New York hospital for three months at one point. He continued to suffer from respiratory problems when visiting Los Angeles with a series of manuscripts of new tunes and arrangements, planning to form a new band and restart his career. Morton died on July 10, 1941 after an eleven-day stay in Los Angeles County General Hospital.

According to the jazz historian David Gelly in 2000, Morton’s arrogance and “bumptious” persona alienated so many musicians over the years that no colleagues or admirers attended his funeral. But, a contemporary news account of the funeral in the August 1, 1941 issue of Downbeat says that fellow musicians Kid Ory, Mutt Carey, Fred Washington and Ed Garland were among his pall bearers. The story notes the absence of Duke Ellington and Jimmie Lunceford, both of whom were appearing in Los Angeles at the time. (The article is reproduced in Alan Lomax’s biography of Morton, Mister Jelly Roll, University of California Press, 1950.) Morton is buried in Calvary Cemetery, 4201 Whittier Blvd, Los Angeles, California, Section N, Lot 347, grave #4,in the north west quadrant of the cemetery.

Piano style

Morton’s piano style was formed from early secondary ragtime and “shout”, which also evolved separately into the New York school of stride piano. Morton’s playing was also close to barrelhouse, which produced boogie woogie.

Morton often played the melody of a tune with his right thumb, while sounding a harmony above these notes with other fingers of the right hand. This added a rustic or “out-of-tune” sound (due to the playing of a diminished 5th above the melody). This may still be recognized as belonging to New Orleans. Morton also walked in major and minor sixths in the bass, instead of tenths or octaves. He played basic swing rhythms in both the left and right hand.

Compositions

Some of Morton’s songs (listed alphabetically):

  • “Big Foot Ham” (a.k.a. “Ham & Eggs”)
  • Black Bottom Stomp
  • Boogaboo
  • “Burnin’ the Iceberg”
  • “The Crave”
  • “Creepy Feelin”
  • “Doctor Jazz Stomp”
  • “The Dirty Dozen”
  • “Fickle Fay Creep”
  • “Finger Buster”
  • “Freakish”
  • “Frog-I-More Rag”
  • “Ganjam”
  • “Good Old New York”
  • “Grandpa’s Spells”
  • “Jungle Blues”
  • “Kansas City Stomp”
  • “London Blues”
  • “Mama Nita”
  • “Milenberg Joys”
  • “Mint Julep”
  • “My Home Is in a Southern Town”
  • “New Orleans Bump”
  • “Pacific Rag”
  • “The Pearls”
  • “Pep”
  • “Pontchartrain”
  • “Red Hot Pepper”
  • “Shreveport Stomp”
  • “Sidewalk Blues”
  • “Stratford Hunch”
  • “Sweet Substitute”
  • “Tank Town Bump”
  • “Turtle Twist”
  • “Why?”
  • Wolverine Blues

Several of Morton’s compositions were musical tributes to himself, including “Winin’ Boy”, “The Jelly Roll Blues”, subtitled “The Original Jelly-Roll”; and “Mr. Jelly Lord”. In the Big Band era, his “King Porter Stomp”, which Morton had written decades earlier, was a big hit for Fletcher Henderson and Benny Goodman; it became a standard covered by most other swing bands of that time. Morton claimed to have written some tunes that were copyrighted by others, including “Alabama Bound” and “Tiger Rag“. “Sweet Peter,” which Morton recorded in 1926, appears to be the source for the melody of the hit song “All Of Me,” ostensibly written by Gerald Marks and Seymour Simons in 1931.

His musical influence continues in the work of Dick Hyman and Reginald Robinson.

Edward “Kid” Ory (December 25, 1886 – January 23, 1973) was a jazz trombonist and bandleader. He was born in Woodland Plantation near La Place, Louisiana.


Ory started playing music with home-made instruments in his childhood, and by his teens was leading a well-regarded band in Southeast 
Louisiana. He kept La Place, Louisiana, as his base of operations due to family obligations until his twenty-first birthday, when he moved his band to New Orleans, Louisiana. He was one of the most influential trombonists of early jazz.

Biography

Ory was a banjo player during his youth and it is said that his ability to play the banjo helped him develop “tailgate,” a particular style of playing the trombone. In “tailgate” style the trombone plays a rhythmic line underneath the trumpets and cornets.

House on Jackson Avenue, New Orleans, was Ory’s residence in the 1910s

The house on Jackson Avenue in the picture to the right is where Buddy Bolden discovered Ory, playing his first New trombone, instead of the old civil war trombone. Unfortunately his sister said he was too young to play with Bolden.

He had one of the best-known bands in New Orleans in the 1910s, hiring many of the great jazz musicians of the city, including, cornetists Joe “King” OliverMutt Carey, and Louis Armstrong; and clarinetists Johnny Dodds and Jimmie Noone.

In 1919 he moved to Los Angeles  one of a number of New Orleans musicians to do so near that time—and he recorded there in 1921 with a band that included Mutt Carey, clarinetist and pianist Dink Johnson, and string bassist Ed Garland. Garland and Carey were longtime associates who would still be playing with Ory during his 1940s comeback. While in Los Angeles Ory and his band recorded two songs, “Ory’s Creole Trombone” and “Society Blues.” They were the first jazz recordings made on the west coast by an African-American jazz band from New Orleans. His band recorded with the recording company Nordskog and Ory paid them for the pressings and then sold them under his own label of “Kid Ory’s Sunshine Orchestra” at a store in Los Angeles called Spikes Brothers Music Store. In 1925, Ory moved to Chicago, where he was very active, working and recording with Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton,Joe “King” Oliver, Johnny Dodds, Bessie SmithMa Rainey, and many others. He mentored Benny Goodman, and later Charles Mingus.

During the Great Depression Ory retired from music and would not play again until 1943. From 1944 to about 1961 he led one of the top New Orleans style bands of the period. In addition to Mutt Carey and Ed Garland, trumpeters Alvin Alcorn and Teddy Buckner; clarinetists Darnell HowardJimmie NooneAlbert NicholasBarney Bigard, and George Probert; pianists Buster WilsonCedric Haywood, and Don Ewell; and drummer Minor Hall were among his sidemen during this period. All but Probert, Buckner, and Ewell were originally from New Orleans.

The Ory band was an important force in reviving interest in New Orleans jazz, making popular 1941-1942 radio broadcasts—among them a number of slots on the Orson Welles Almanac broadcast and a jazz history series sponsored by Standard Oil—as well as by making recordings. During the late 1940s and early 1950s, Ory and his group appeared at the Beverly Cavern in Los Angeles.

Ory retired from music in 1966 and spent his last years in

Discography

This list is an attempt to compile all artists’ names and all song titles as listed on the actual labels of the discs in Paramount’s 12000 and 13000 series.
This list is based on the information contained in The Online Discographical Project (Steven Abrams) and the research of Max Vreede, published in his book “Paramount 12000/13000 Series Discography” (Storyville, 1971). Max Vreede had access to the original Paramount file cards. But in some cases the names or song titles on the file cards deviate from the names and song titles as printed on the record labels. Ongoing research by Echo Park attempts to merge the information from the existing discographies and to check artists’ names and song titles against the names and song titles as printed on the record labels.

Kid Ory’s Legendary
Nordskog/Sunshine Recordings

by Floyd Levin

This is the saga of two pioneer companies who were jointly responsible for establishing an important milestone along jazz’s long journey. Together, they conceived the first recordings of authentic black New Orleans jazz — and, in so doing, created a controversy that continues to shroud the true genesis of those very rare records that Kid Ory made in Santa Monica, California in 1922 Were they recorded for the Nordskog label — or for the Sunshine Label? This story reveals many of the long-hidden facts about the arcane recordings, but will the enigma that surrounds the missing information ever be solved?

§ § §

THE details of this obscure segment of jazz history, as disclosed here, were gathered over a period of 40 years. They stem from conversations and interviews I conducted with most of the participants in that pivotal recording session. Appropriately, much of the material was provided by Benjamin “Reb” Spikes, one of the principal protagonists in this drama, and from the personal files of Arne A. Nordskog, the founder of the recording firm that bore his name.

The Ory records originally appeared on the black Nordskog label imprinted in gold with the slogan “Established in 1921 — First on The Pacific Coast”. But according to some of my information, that label has actually been hidden since its initial appearance 70 years ago! This nearly forgotten event occurred before King Oliver’s Creole Jazz Band was heard on record — earlier than Jelly Roll Morton’s famed piano solos — and four years prior to the appearance of Louis Armstrong’s Hot Five classics on Okeh. Surprisingly, the fabled Ory records were produced far from the nation’s cultural hubs, in southern California, then a provincial outland separated by several thousand miles from the music centres of the country.

Before emigrating to California in 1918, Reb Spikes and his brother, Johnny, were active in the music business in their hometown, Muskogee, Oklahoma. They operated an open air playhouse, The Pastime Theatre, where they employed many of the early travelling jazz bands and blues singers.

Reb Spikes

“In 1911,” Reb told me in an interview published in Jazz Journal in December 1951, “Jelly Roll Morton drifted into town and he played at our theater — we paid him $100.00 a week, a huge fee in those days! He decided to join the McCabes Troubadours, a travelling minstrel show, doing a black-face comedy act. He convinced my brother and me to go with him as part of the act. Jelly didn’t hire on as a musician . . . the show’s band had a pianist. Before long, he displayed his ability . . . and soon took over the piano stool! When the Troubadours came back through Oklahoma, Johnny and I left the show. By that time, Jelly was their star!”

In 1919, a year after moving to Los Angeles, they opened The Spikes Brothers Music Store at 1703 Central Avenue. The store soon was the city’s centre of black musical activity. Eventually, the brothers became involved in every phase of the entertainment business. Their Dreamland Cafe on 4th Street became a Mecca for local musicians. When the Spikes brothers opened their Wayside Amusement Park, they sent for Jelly Roll Morton who became the musical director and star performer. Morton engaged Kid Ory, the then 31-year-old trombonist, who had led one of the prominent bands in New Orleans, to appear at the Wayside Cafe with his Creole Orchestra.

Explaining how the early Ory records were made, Reb Spikes recalled: “Back in those days, our store was the only place in Los Angeles where recordings by black artists could be purchased. As a result, we did a huge record business! The early blues recordings were quite risqué for that time. Wealthy Hollywood people would drive up in long limousines and send their chauffeurs in to ask for “dirty records”. When the local distributor received a shipment of Mamie Smith or Ma Rainey records, we’d take the entire lot . . . a few hours later, they’d be gone! We were selling as many as 100 copies a day of Alberta Hunter’s Black Swan recording of a song Johnny and I had recently written, Someday Sweetheart. We decided to make our own records to sell in the store. Kid Ory had accepted an offer to appear with his band in Oakland at The Creole Café. We asked him to come back to Los Angeles to make the records for us. We wanted him to accompany two local blues singers, Roberta Dudley and Ruth Lee, singing some of our tunes that we had just published. Ory complained that his band would not be heard enough so we suggested he do a few instrumentals including Society Blues, and his own tune, Ory’s Creole Trombone. He recorded it again five years later with Louis Armstrong.”

The Nordskog facility in Santa Monica in 1921

All the recordings were made at the new Nordskog facility in Santa Monica, a dozen miles west of Los Angeles, just a few blocks from the Pacific Ocean. The original building still stood in 1992. Only some decorative urns had been removed from the building’s parapets. The Nordskog space was occupied by a shoe repair shop and a veterinarian’s clinic. When I visited the site, none of the occupants of the building or the neighbours were aware of the historical significance of the property — and none had previously been questioned in that regard. Apparently the building had changed hands several times since the Nordskog period. The present owner and the previous owner were contacted; neither was able to provide any pertinent information.

Arne Andrae Nordskog, a son of Norwegian settlers, pioneered much of Los Angeles’s classical music activity for many years. He began as a singer in his birthplace, Story City, Iowa, and joined the Seattle Grand Opera Company in 1914. Two years later, Nordskog was the leading tenor with the Knickerbocker Light Opera Company in Los Angeles. By 1921, at the age of 36 he had become general manager of a series of concerts at the recently inaugurated Hollywood Bowl. Nordskog opened his recording studio, the first on the West Coast, that same year. Initially, his goal was to preserve the sounds of the classical artists he was introducing to Hollywood Bowl audiences. The recording equipment was designed and built by Nordskog’s father-in-law Frank Lockwood, who had no previous recording experience. He constructed large wooden horns that transmitted the sound to a vibrating needle. As Lockwood turned the mechanism by hand, the needle cut grooves into a thick rotating wax disc. The wax underwent two electro-plating operations that produced the nickel stamper from which the records were pressed — also by hand. The stamping operation was launched shortly after the Kid Ory records were produced. Documents in Nordskog’s files indicate that the six hydraulic presses were capable of turning out a million records a year. Unfortunately, there are no statistics to establish the quantity that were actually pressed.

Reb Spikes, recalling the recording session, said: “Nordskog had some recording equipment out in Santa Monica and we arranged for him to cut the masters. The Ory band was assembled in a small room and they played into tapered square boxes. There was one for each of the horns. The piano and drums were placed close together. Mutt Carey’s cornet recorded the strongest — he was probably closest to the horns. Mutt was very popular around here. It was as much his band as Ory’s. We billed the group as Ory’s Creole Orchestra at Wayside Park because people kept asking to hear the band play Ory’s Creole Trombone.”

Jelly Roll Morton’s brother-in-law, Dink Johnson, played clarinet on the Nordskog session. He had a clear recollection of the date when I spoke to him in a barber shop in Santa Barbara, California in 1950:

“I came out from New Orleans with Freddy Keppard’s Creole Orchestra in 1919 and decided to remain in Los Angeles. I had a chance to play clarinet with Jelly at Paradise Gardens at 12th and Central. I was actually a drummer you know. I had always wanted to play the clarinet since hearing Larry Shields with The Original Dixieland Jazz Band. So I borrowed a horn from the Spikes Brothers store and practised every day trying to sound like Shields. Wade Waley (Whaley) was Ory’s regular player. He and Buddy Petit came out here back in 1911, and Waley (Whaley) stayed. Something prevented him from making the recording in Santa Monica and Ory asked me to substitute. Freddy Washington was on piano. He was from Houston and had just joined the band. He replaced Manuel Manetta who went back to New Orleans to join Celestin’s Tuxedo Orchestra.”

One of the songs recorded that day by Roberta Dudley, Dink Johnson’s Krooked Blues, was composed in collaboration with the Spikes Brothers who published the tune. It was recorded the following year by King Oliver’s Creole Jazz Band.

Bassist Ed Montudie Garland, (interviewed in Jazz Journal from June 1979 onwards) for many years the sole survivor of the original Ory band, came to California in 1921 on a tour with King Oliver. Jelly Roll Morton had engaged the Oliver band to appear at the Spikes’s Wayside Park Cafe. Reb Spikes remembered that the pianist Lil Hardin had to return to Chicago and Morton played with the band during the Wayside engagement. In one of my few conversations with Johnny Spikes, he suggested that a recording of this band might have taken place. I have never been able to find any evidence of this. When the Oliver band left Los Angeles, Ed Garland stayed to join Kid Ory. He resumed a relationship that had begun a decade earlier with Kid Ory’s Brown Skin Babies at Pete Lala’s 25 Club in New Orleans. His resonant string bass was heard in the Ory band for the next 40 years. “They didn’t know how to record the bass in those days,” Garland often said. “There wasn’t room for me near one of those large horns. Ben Borders’s drums were too loud and you can’t hear the bass!” Nevertheless, when I introduced him nightly to European audiences attending our Night In New Orleans concerts, we played an excerpt from Ory’s Creole Trombone. Garland, then in his eighties, was greeted with tumultuous cheers as I helped him onto the stage in England, Belgium, Holland, Italy and Germany.

Reb Spikes continued: “There were no processing or pressing plants on the Coast at that time. We had the records made back east by The Standard Music Roll Company who operated The Arto Pressing Company in Orange, New Jersey. They went out of business the following year. We lost several masters going through the hot desert. The heat melted the wax and they had to be discarded. One of the masters that melted was Froggie Moore, one of Jelly’s tunes we were planning to publish. We almost lost Ory’s Creole Trombone. The wax did crack — you can hear the click on every pressing.” (Ed Garland confirmed the loss of masters in the desert heat. He told me that an original blues he had written for the Ory band was recorded but never appeared on record — apparently damaged en route to the processing plant. He was unable to recall the title.)

“For some reason,” said Spikes, “Nordskog put his label on our records. He called Ory’s Sunshine Orchestra The Seven Pods Of Pepper . . . he had no business doing this — they were our property! We had contracted for 5,000 pressings that should have had our Sunshine label. We had to paste our label over his. They had to be oversize and almost covered the last grooves! All of the records were sold in our store except for a small amount we shipped to Chicago . . . we had placed a small ad in a Chicago paper and received a few mail orders — but every copy passed over the counter of our shop. When the 5,000 were gone, we did not order any more.”

Collectors who have obtained some of those rare records are usually aware of the double labelling. The black and orange Sunshine label, emblazoned with a glowing sunset behind a California mission, has usually been eroded by time, exposing fragments of the Nordskog label that is beneath. In many cases, the entire Sunshine label has disappeared and only the original Nordskog nameplate exists. These rarities are still eagerly sought by collectors. Their original retail price was 75 cents. At auction, the original records have brought bids of $350.00 (around £205.00) and more.

Eight years after my interview with Reb Spikes was published in Jazz Journal, a comprehensive article about Andres Nordskog appeared in the May 1959 issue of the now defunct Jazz Monthly in London. The authors, John Bentley and Ralph W. Miller, presented an entirely different version of the Nordskog/Sunshine debacle:

“The Spikes Brothers, who had a music store in the Negro district on Central Avenue in Los Angeles, arranged for Kid Ory’s Band (then known as Spikes’ Pods Of Pepper) to make the recordings at The Nordskog Laboratories in Santa Monica. They were released under the Nordskog label to merchants throughout the world, with the Spikes Brothers ordering a great number for sale in their own store where they sold like hot cakes to the Negro trade. When Spikes failed to pay for the Nordskog records they had received, Nordskog filed suit in Superior Court in Los Angeles and obtained judgment which was only paid in part. Kid Ory, also having a grievance, broke with the Spikes Brothers and obtained a quantity of his own recordings and pasted his own label, Sunshine Records, over the Nordskog label and called it Kid Ory’s Sunshine Orchestra.”

Recently, while examining Nordskog’s voluminous files, I came across his personal memo to John Bentley dated November 22, 1958, six months prior to the publication of the Jazz Monthly article. Apparently the memo was Bentley’s and Miller’s source for the details quoted above; it narrated the events exactly as they appear in their article. Nordskog’s implication that Kid Ory pasted his own Sunshine label on the records seems implausible since the label bears the bold imprint: ‘Manuf. by Spikes Brothers Phonograph Record Co. Inc. Los Angeles.’

Whenever I spoke to Kid Ory about the famed recordings, he was very reluctant to provide any information. He did tell me, with embarrassment, that a prank had been played on him at the Nordskog session. “This was my first recording and I didn’t know what I was supposed to wear. Tudi (Ed Garland) told me that tuxedos were in order, so I showed up in a tux and a stiff shirt. We were all very nervous, I remember. No one seemed to notice the full dress.” Although I had a very close relationship with Ory, any additional questions were always met with suspicion and evoked very little response. He would always say: “What are you gonna do — write a book about me?” (Perhaps I might one day; my files are bursting with material about him.)

The Nordskog memo confirms that Arto Company had pressed the records prior to Nordskog’s acquisition of his own stamping equipment. It states: ‘When Arto went into bankruptcy in 1923, it had in its possession eighty sets of Nordskog Records’ masters, mothers, and stampers . . . A claim was filed in the sum of $20,000 for the loss of those sets. Apparently the salvaging of Arto assets did not justify the payment of such a claim, so Nordskog got nothing.’ One can only speculate on the material those 80 masters contained. Did they include the original tune Ed Garland wrote for the session, or the missing Froggie Moore?

There is a further revelation in the 1958 Nordskog memo. Apparently Arto and Nordskog had agreed in 1921 to exchange material for release on their respective labels. At the time, Arto was issuing records by the blues singer Lucille Hagamin (Hegamin), and soon launched the recording career of The Original Memphis Five (Phil Napoleon, Miff Mole, Jimmy Lytell, Frank Signorelli and Jack Roth). The memo indicates that Arto also had many ‘trade secret’ recordings by bands ‘consisting of first chair musicians in prominent New York orchestras under contract with Victor and other leading recording companies . . . who made the records being released by Arto and Nordskog.’ Since Arto had access to all of the West Coast material, did any of the Ory sides ever appear on the Arto label? Is it possible that the mythical Morton-Oliver session was issued by Arto? It appears unlikely, since none of these items have surfaced to date. However, the possibility exists!

The Nordskog catalogue, dated November 1922, lists the Ruth Lee and Roberta Dudley titles as: Vocal — Spikes Orchestra (the actual record labels merely state: Orchestral Acc). Ory’s Creole Trombone and Society Blues are credited to Seven Pods Of Pepper Orchestra. The catalogue also lists Eva Tanguay (The ‘I Don’t Care Girl’), Herb Weidoeft’s Famous Orchestra, The Hollywood Syncopators, The Big Bear Melody Boys, The Catalina Social Seven Orchestra, and Abe Lyman’s Ambassador Orchestra. (Brian Rust’s Jazz Records contains no Lyman listings prior to 1923). A search of the Nordskog files failed to disclose the personnel of these California groups.

The modest catalogue could not have consumed the pressing capacity of a million records per year as Nordskog’s files boasted. Is it possible that he did release some of those ‘trade secret’ recordings from the Arto masters? I have a copy of a purchase order to the Nordskog Phonograph Co dated October 31, 1922 from M. B. Armstrong Music Co in Oklahoma City. They were ordering 50 copies of Teddy Bear Blues — which does not appear in the catalogue. This is a further indication of Nordskog’s expanded capacity just prior to his bankruptcy. (A marginal pencilled notation on the M. B. Armstrong order computes the invoice amount at the wholesale price of 45 cents each!).

The Nordskog Record Company was in existence only from 1921 to 1923; however, Arne Nordskog remained extremely active in many fields for the next 35 years. He became a very successful author, newspaper publisher, public activist, and banking system expert. Nordskog was responsible for the US government consolidating its gold reserves in Fort Knox. He also ran as a vice-presidential candidate on The Liberty Party’s unsuccessful opposition to Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1932. Apparently Nordskog kept in contact with Kid Ory over the years. His files included a clipping from The Los Angeles Herald Express dated August 11, 1951. An article announcing Ory’s forthcoming appearance at The Beverly Cavern mentions the early recordings and indicates that Nordskog would be present at the opening. Nordskog died in 1957.

I had the opportunity to meet Robert Arne Nordskog (died July 1992), the son of the pioneer record producer, several years ago when The Hollywood Bowl Museum honoured Nordskog senior and displayed some of his original recording equipment as part of the museum’s opening exhibit, Sound Waves.

Although he was a young boy at the time of his father’s brief recording activity, Robert Nordskog had clear recollections of the period. He was able, thanks to vivid memories of related events, to definitely establish the year of the Ory recordings as 1921, not 1922 as most discographies indicate. Nordskog speaks glowingly of his father’s varied career and is prideful of the many accomplishments attributed to him. He was visibly disturbed when he read my 1951 Jazz Journal story about The Spikes Brothers. He had no previous knowledge about Reb Spikes’s claim that the Ory records were intended to be issued on Spikes’s Sunshine label. Vehemently defending his father’s integrity, Nordskog told me: “I know, by 1922, my father had extended himself financially — probably from his heavy investment in the pressing equipment. This could have occurred during the period when the Nordskog records were still being processed in the east. He soon went into bankruptcy.” It was Robert Nordskog’s contention that perhaps the New Jersey pressing plant was responsible for the mislabelling. Possibly, he suggested, they might have pressed the copies to sell as payment for a Nordskog debt. Since both the Arto Pressing Company and Nordskog ceased operations the following year, the full explanation will probably never be known.

For decades, the very obscure Nordskog and Sunshine records were almost forgotten. Eventually, collectors learned about those hermetic aural documentaries of authentic New Orleans jazz. They have long pondered the perplexing mystery of the dual labelling. To add to the confusion, the problem was compounded in 1951 when Nordskog reissued the Kid Ory and Eva Tanguay records on a replica of his original label. Kid Ory reportedly sold one of the Sunshine records to Paradox Industries for $90.00. Ory’s Creole Trombone and Society Blues soon appeared on the Paradox label. About six years later, the same pairing was issued by Hip, a Hollywood label that was briefly available when 45rpm records were coming into popularity. Twenty-eight years after the historic Nordskog session, the Ory records were reissued on a collector’s label in England. Sinclair Traill (founder of Jazz Journal) writing in London’sMelody Maker (November 13, 1949) said: ‘The band generates fine swing. These ideas have lost little over the years and remain fine historic examples of genuine New Orleans jazz.’

I have just replayed my treasured old 78rpm Sunshine records. A careful listening confirms Traill’s astute appraisal. The Nordskog stock numbers, embossed in the shellac, are different from the numbers printed on the Sunshine label. No matrix numbers are in evidence.

I am extremely grateful for the valuable use of the original Nordskog files. They were generously made available to me by Robert A. Nordskog and his grandson Michael Nordskog, who is currently collating the thousands of documents that outline much of his great-grandfather’s colourful career. The original Nordskog recording equipment, some of the old wax and metal discs, and a considerable number of the rare pressings, still exist. Until his recent death, Robert Nordskog kept them on display in a small exhibit in one of his industrial buildings in a Los Angeles suburb. The attractive exhibit included original Nordskog contracts, stock certificates, early publicity photos, and much more. While this interesting little museum is no longer open to the public, the Nordskog family is currently arranging for this valuable material to become a permanent exhibit in a prestigious archival institution.

At this point, the true explanation of the Nordskog/Sunshine label controversy remains a mystery. Thanks to the foresight of The Spikes Brothers, the musicianship of the Kid Ory band, and the technical prowess of Arne Nordskog, the earliest sounds of true New Orleans jazz have at least been preserved. This cumulative effort will always rank as one of jazz’s most memorable achievements. Hopefully, further research will eventually reveal the full details of this intriguing segment of recorded jazz history.
