by David Tenner

WlLLlE LEWlS AND HlS NEGRO BAND: Willie Lewis, as, v dir: Louis Bacon, Henry Mason, t / Billy Burns, tb / Ernst
Hollerhagen, cl, as / Johnny Russell, cl, ts / Denis Chappelet, ts / Alfred Siegrist, p / Peter Angst, g / June Cole, sb,
v / Tommy Benford, d. Zurich, June 27, 1941 Yes, a bit old-fashioned and sentimental compared to Hawk, but IMO a quite lovely solo nevertheless--and certainly an original one (Russell isn't copying Chu, Hawk, or anyone else).
