Dave Peyton writes in the May 5, 1928 issue of the "Chicago Defender" about the importance of the arranger in jazz bands. Don Redman (referred to as Donald Redmond) is included among "our best music arrangers."

Weird, if you download the so-called Bix Beiderbecke Savoy Blues 1927 mp3 in the page

http://abmp3.com/download/5316355-bix-b ... -1927.html

guess what you get? Louis's Hot Five version!

It provides mp3 files for other non-Bix recordings incorrectly assigned to Bix!! "Chicago Blues," "Mobile Blues," "Basin Street Blues," etc.
