    Edward Kid Ory was the greates tailgate man ever! The finest examples of his style is to be found on the recordings of The New Orleans Wanderers/Bootblacks from 1926, all electrically recorded in beautiful fidelity. Others to be counted in are: Roy Palmer, George Brunies and Jim Robinson (at least they ar MY favourites).

    As late as 1962 Armstrong and Ory did play together on the Mark Twain at Disney. Walt Disney loved the hot fives and sometimes brought the then surviving members together.

    Interesting to know, Bert. Thanks for the information. If I had the possibility, I would have done the same. And: I love Disney!

    Babette, Kid Ory’s daughter told me so, she had great memories of it, since her daddie took her with him to Disney, and you can find video material of this on youtube.
