Shilkret as Red's Recording Director

by Nick Dellow

You ask if Nat Shilkret was the recording director for the Red Nichols' / Red and Miff's Stompers sessions at Victor. It seems that he was, at least for:-


Red and Miff Stompers - Oct 12, 1927 Slippin' Around (Vic 21397) Feelin' No Pain (Vic 21183)


This is according to:-

and

You also mention:-


Red and Miff Stompers - Feb 11, 1927 Delirium/Davenport Blues (Vic 20778)

and

Red Nichols' Stompers - Oct 26, 1927 Sugar/Make My Cot ... Vic 20156


However, Shilkret is not listed as the recording director for either of these sessions (though that doesn't necessarily mean that he wasn't!):-
