Original Tuxedo Jass Band (1964)

Here’s a little christmas present for you all: The Original Tuxedo Jass Band playing “Just a Closer Walk With Thee” in the TV studios of Südwestfunk Baden-Baden in autumn 1964. This clip is just a part of the band’s appearance that was broadcasted in the series “Jazz gehört und gesehen” (Jazz heard and seen) in 1965.

You will see (and hear!) Joshua “Jack” Willis (tp) Waldren “Frog” Joseph (tb) Joseph “Cornbread” Thomas (cl,vcl) Jeanette Kimball (p) Albert “Papa” French (bj,g) Frank Fields (b) Louis Barbarin (d).

Thanks to the late Otto Flückiger and to Benne Vischer!

(and a happy new year!)

    Great stuff, Armin, but it’s Louis Barbarin not his brother Paul. Have a great Christmas and keep up the good work.


  2. Thanks, Peter! I have corrected this.
