Rob tells me that I should have included "She Loves Me" by the California Ramblers in the Bobby Davis program. Indeed, I should have.

First, here is a link to a very interesting posting where I report that reed player John Otto discovered that a piece of Bix's solo in the Wolverines "Riverboat Shuffle" was interpolated by Bobby Davis in his solo in the California Ramblers recording of "She Loves Me."

Rob kindly sent a scan of the record label and a better sound file of the recording. Thanks Rob!

<span class="yshortcuts">This was recorded on Sep 6, 1924. Two weeks earlier, on Aug 20, 1924, Bobby Davis recorded the same tune with the Varsity Eight. Listen</span>

<span class="yshortcuts">Here Bobby Davis does not interpolate the "Riverside Shuffle" fragment. </span>

Paul kindly sent an mp3 file of Armand Hug's May 19, 1956 recording of his own composition "My Old Time Sweetheart" with Phil Darois, bass and Charlie Duke, drums.

bixography.com/MyOldTimeSweetheartArmandHug.mp3

A piece of Bix's "In A Mist" is interpolated at the beginning and at the end, no accident; a deliberate quote.

I remind you of the album

<a></a>Bix Hug.Jazzology JCE-83 (Volume 33 of the Jazz Piano Heritage Series). The New Orleans jazz pianist Armand Hug plays twenty two numbers associated with Bix, including the four piano compositions, as well as Davenport Blues, Singin' the Blues, I'm Comin' Virginia, I'll Be a Friend with Pleasure, and others.The liners for this album are written by John Perhonis). The interesting aspect of this recording is that Hug plays some of Bix's cornet solos note for note on the piano.
