J.C.Higginbotham(6)

April 16.2017

During and after World War II, he played sometimes with Red Allen and sometimes with his own band.

Red Allen was one of the few trumpet players who could parry with Louis Armstrong in the same style.

Also they were a participant in major occasions such as the Newport Festival.

Then he worked once again briefly in 1964 with Louis Armstrong.

He died on May 26, 1973 in New York.

Like many jazz musicians of his generation, Higginbotham was later associated with a “dixieland-style”.

So some jazz fans see him as a dixie style player.

He contributed as one of the swing trombone pioneers.

I hope his evaluation will be evaluated more than now.

JCとRed Allenは仲が良く長い間行動を共にしています。
Red AllenはLouis Armstrong 直系の奏者です。

JCは1973年5月26日、67歳でニューヨークにて永眠しました。
彼の晩年の演奏はディキシー奏者との共演が多かったことから、トロンボーン奏者として過小評価されていると思われます。
しかし、彼はスイングトロンボーンのパイオニアの一人です。
彼の評価が今よりももっと評価されることを願っています。
