Re: I don't know where I found the quote you cited.

by Nick Dellow

The same drummer is on the October 5th, 1928 Trumbauer session, but according to Richard Sudhalter (in the Bix-Tram-Teagarden Mosaic box set liner notes) Lennie Hayton "is clearly the pianist on the date -- and the drummer's name, as recorded in Trumbauer's ledger, is illegible." In describing the efforts of the unknown drummer, Sudhalter says "....his banging and clattering is even more jarring than that on the September 'Gang' session."

I definitely agree with Sudhalter that it's the same guy on drums, and if Hayton is the pianist on the October 5th session then this would presumably rule him out as the drummer on this and, therefore, on the September 20th and 21st sessions, wouldn't it?
