I will forward your email to Julius "Boo" Hornstein (who is somewhat an
authority on Mr. Oliver. King Oliver died penniless in Savannah in 1938
(which would make a great film, Mr. Eastwood). Thanks to "Boo's" many years
of dedicated work on the Oliver legacy, this past year, Wynton Marsalis
participated in a dedication to Oliver at a location near where he worked
shortly before his death (a pool hall on West Broad Street /
WHCJ 90.3 FM

I was cruising through redhotjazz.com and found a couple of trumpet/piano
duets featuring King Oliver with Jellyroll Morton.
I've never really gotten as clear a picture of what King Oliver sounded
like and thought fello jazz folks might find this of interest.
