I'm an American, alas, and speak nothing but English. These dates and personnel are out there on the interwebs, with one oddity around Columbia 1229-D versus Columbia 4797.

You can get a translation at https://translate.google.com/translate? ... rev=search  Of course, like most computer translations, it reads a bit oddly in places:  ""Nevertheless, between Bix 'and Reds game was not more than  a fleeting resemblance.  Both had only one thing in common: the fluid lightness and Variation of their game, which they mastered without any external effort.  Both  had the same crystal clear tone as the other jazz trumpeters of that era  eg Frank Cush, Vic D'Ippollito and Chelsey Quealey, which is also a place of honor in  belongs to the jazz annals..."  Evidently the German word "spiel" (to play) was translated as it it here meant to play a game, rather than a musical instrument...

I note that for Mississippi Mud, Rust gives Pee Wee Russell instead of Livingston.  I wonder if anyone has made a survey of all the "Pee Wee or Fud?" disputed records...
