Jimmie Caldwell Jazz Jesters

by Janice (Caldwell) Samuelson

Hello from Michigan. Jimmie Caldwell is my grandfather. I have a copy J.E.'s memoirs handtyped by him back in the 1980's. Music was his life blood and he has much to say about all the great musicians he came in contact with. I have a photo of the band and have always wondered who's who. I have recently sent a copy of the photo to Northwestern Univ. and am in the process of pulling the written information together for their archives. I am still unclear about two of the men because they both hold a sax. I believe the one is Jimmie Fallis who played sax and clarinet, which is next to him on the floor. I am in the process of finding these other musicians and hopefully a photo of them.

J.E.'s memoirs are in excess of 570 type-written pages.
