Jack Mollick was my grandfather. I have a book about big bands with his picture in it, and I also have a CD entitled Fred Hall's Sugar Babies, in which Jack plays the trumpet. Jack's son Stanley was also a trumpet player, and is still alive.The trumpet on "Wipin' the Blues" is SURELY not Mosiello. Fred Hall used Mollick in 1928 and early 1929, just before Mosiello joined, and if I were a betting man I would put money on Mollick here. This Mollick fellow was following a Bixian groove, certainly - though I know nothing about him. Does anyone have anything in print about Jack Mollick?
