Album Review

The second of Collector's Classics complete reissuance of trumpeter and vocalist Wingy Manone's early recordings has some particularly interesting tracks. There are four songs on which Manone utilizes some of the sidemen from Ben Pollack's Orchestra (all of whom would soon join Bob Crosby), he leads a quartet called "The Four Bales of Cotton" on a spirited version of "Shine," and for ten songs he's featured with the New Orleans Rhythm Kings, a pickup group featuring the Kings' original trombonist George Brunies and clarinetist Sidney Arodin. The most unusual session took place August 15, 1934, when Manone led a date that also included trombonist Dicky Wells, the then-unknown clarinetist Artie Shaw, tenor saxophonist Bud Freeman, a strong rhythm section, and either Teddy Wilson or Jelly Roll Morton on piano; this was Morton's only recording session of 1931-1937. Highly recommended to swing and Dixieland collectors, as are the other CDs in this series.

Biography

Born: 14 February 1900 in New Orleans, LA

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '20s, '30s, '40s, '50s, '60s

Wingy Manone was an excellent Dixieland trumpeter whose jivey vocals were popular and somewhat reminiscent of his contemporary, Louis Prima. He had lost his right arm in a streetcar accident when he was ten, but Manone (who Joe Venuti once gave one cuff link for a Christmas present) never appeared to be handicapped in public (effectively using an artificial arm). He played trumpet in riverboats starting when he was 17, was with the Crescent City Jazzers (which later became the Arcadian Serenaders)...
