So many errors

on this label. Question for you: Is this played open horn? It has has a muted sound to me but maybe it's the pre-microphone recording method. Also, it seems to me Bix had a similar vibrato sound on at least some of the Wolverines sides. Was that just an early style popularized by some of the New Orleans musicians, or is it maybe something young horn players eventually grow out of when they're stronger players?
