The Harlem Hamfats - New Orleans to Harlem

The Harlem Hamfats - New Orleans to Harlem
CD / Product Number: URCD285

Here we have a rare treat - the New Orleans jazz of the 1930s by way of Harlem and Chicago. While most of the New Orleans musicians were absorbed into the great black swing bands, Herb Morand fronted the Harlem Fats - a flat out New Orleans band!
The personnel were HERB MORAND, trumpet and vocals, ODELL RAND, Eb clarinet, HORACE MALCOLM, piano, JOE McCOY, guitar and vocals, CHARLIE McCOY, mandolin, guitar and vocals, JOHN LINDSAY or RANSOM KNOWLING, string bass, FRED FLYNN or PEARLIS WILLIAMS, drums.
