Froggie Moore / Chimes Blues


Louis Armstrong , King Oliver's Creole Jazz Band


Amoeba Review

10/28/2012

Two killer New Orleans ensemble jazz sides by King Oliver's Creole Band featuring young Louis Armstrong (and his first recorded jazz solo). Froggie Moore is an adaptation of a Jelly Roll Morton tune. Johnny Dodd's fluid clarinet plays counter melodies and adds his characteristic filigree around the twin cornets of Oliver and Armstrong. The tune closes with a wistful second strain titled by Jelly Roll on other records as “Sweetheart of Mine”. Louis steps upto the recording horn and plays beautiful lead throughout this section. In the middle of Chimes Blues, the band's piano player Lil Hardin plays a break with unusual chimes-like chords instead of single note runs – almost like a fanfare announcing that a new king has arrived – in fact, her break immediately precedes Louis' first recorded solo.
