There are two versions of Clarinet Marmalade

by Nick Dellow

Elizalde recorded Clarinet Marmalade twice (both in 1927). The one I gave the link to was the second version - recorded for Brunswick - which features Jack Jackson. The one you are referring to above was recorded at the earlier June 1927 HMV session made by Elizalde's Cambridge band (labelled as "Fred Elizalde and his Cambridge Undergraduates"). Both versions are listed in Jazz Records.

Incidentally, have you heard Elizalde's "Don't Bring Me Posies"? It is very Bixian (well, "Bix-Tram-ian" really!), and also features Jack Jackson.
