Apologies. I forgot to cite the work that included the two pages kindly scanned by Steve.

From Scarecrow Press.

Series: Studies in Jazz #22
Philip R. Evans, Stanley Hester, Stephen Hester, and Linda Evans

Pub Date: 1997
746 pages
Binding: Cloth

"...massive and thorough...should prove to be the definitive discography, of the postwar Nichols, for the foreseeable future...the thoroughness of this work and the cross indexes (song title/musician) will pretty much give enough info for anyone to deduce an approximate date/personnel with just tune titles. A loving effort." CADENCE

Trumpeter Ernest "Red" Nichols was an influential bandleader during the heyday of jazz in the Roaring Twenties, who nurtured the talents of such jazz luminaries as Jimmy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, and Glenn Miller. Nichols was also in constant demand as a studio musician, and, as a result, his musical output ranks him among the most prolific jazz musicians in history. This handy one-volume reference supplies jazz scholars, collectors, and fans with a complete, chronological bio-discography to all issued recordings (including compact disc) as well as unissued material, radio and television appearances, concerts, interviews, and privately owned home recordings spanning the period 1942-1965.

Stanley Hester
and Stephen Hester are long-time Red Nichols collectors. They are both members of the International Association of Jazz Records Collectors (IAJRC). Philip R. Evans is a renowned researcher, writer and consultant on the music and musicians of the bygone era. His books include Al Jolson (Scarecrow, 1985) and Tram: The Frank Trumbauer Story (Scarecrow, 1994). [No mention of Bix, Man and Legend. AH]
