Immature? Unsupported?

by John Coffin

Bix never seems to have a tremolo like this. Though he does have a slight wavering on a few passages with the Wolverines.

Muggsy seems to be playing open. With a particularly squeezed, unsupported tone. I'm more reminded of Natty Dominique. Muggsy certainly grew past this pretty soon. He's pretty secure on other things from the mid-20s. But I'm no expert on him. I've never tried a listen through him in chronological order...
