Last week I posted about Luis Russell’s contribution.

Luis Russell relocated to New York with King Oliver in May 1927.

Then they had a game with Chick Webb as “BATTLE OF JAZZ” at the Savoy Ballroom.

Next year(1928) ,one jazz trombonist came to New York from Buffalo.

Chick Webb allowed young trombonist to play at the Savoy Ballroom.

He was subsequently signed by Luis Russell as trombonist Harry White’s replacement and remained with Russell until 1931.

The young jazz trombonist was J. C. Higginbotham.

J. C. Higginbotham was the first of the great black swing trombonists, and he participated in several immortal sessions particularly in the period 1929-36.

Unfortunately J. C. Higginbotham also has became a forgotten existence in Japan.

This week I would like to post about his acheivement.

先週、私はLuis Russellの貢献について投稿しましたが、Russell楽団でJ. C. Higginbothamの名前が気になりました。
1927年、Luis Russellと King OliverはSavoy BallroomでChick Webbらと “BATTLE OF JAZZ”を行いました。
翌年、一人のトロンボーン奏者がNew Yorkに来ました。Chick webbは若いトロンボーン奏者にSavoy Ballroomでの演奏を許しました。その後、彼はLuis Russell楽団に入団し、1931年まで在籍しました。
J. C. Higginbothamは、偉大な黒人スイングトロンボーン奏者の一人であり、特に1929から36年にレコーディングされた演奏は歴史に残りました。今週はJ. C. Higginbothamについて投稿します。

Here is J.C. Higginbotham plays “Give me your telephone number”.

Here is Henry Red Allen with J.C.Higginbotham play “Higginbotham Blues”.
