Lovely to Look At. Bechet had begun playing with various New Orleans ensembles as a child. In he began touring, heading north to Chicago, sometimes playing with Freddie Keppard.
But in he was convicted of assault and deported back to the States. He was jailed and deported again, this time in Paris, for involvement in a gun battle.
Back in the United States in , Noble Sissle owned the courage to hire him, with whom he returned to Europe, then Russia, then back to the States, that time without deportment. Shuffling from gig to gig and band to band, it was now the Depression and jobs in the music industry were getting thin. So he and trumpeter, Tommy Ladnier, opened a tailor shop.

Born in Feb of in New Orleans, cornet player Freddie Keppard , is one of the few musicians on this page who knew Buddy Bolden thirteen years Keppard's senior , and is said to have played much in Bolden 's style.
Keppard first played accordion, violin and mandolin. It was the mandolin he played when at about the age of ten he began performing duos with his older brother Louis. He didn't take up the cornet until he was sixteen, about the same year he formed his first band, the Olympia Orchestra.
He then took Bolden's vacated spot not only in the Eagle Band but in general, as his playing was so similar to Bolden's. About Keppard settled in Chicago where, upon the dissolution of his orchestra in , he pursued a solo career until , then forming the Jazz Cardinals. He began recording with Doc Cook in ' By the time of his first issues in latter '26 with his Jazz Cardinals 'Stock Yards Strut' and 'Salty Dog' Blythe had long since developed the amusing stunt of playing with a handkerchief over his instrument, to hide his fingering from thieves, he said.

Born in in Ogden, Utah, Dixieland cornetist Red Nichols [ 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 ] was popular for his foxtrots. He first recorded with the Syncopating Seven on November 22, , putting down 'Chicago' for issue presumed to have been the next year.
It was with Bailey's Lucky Seven that Nichols first teamed with trombonist Miff Mole , one of his more important compatriots during the twenties, performing in numerous groups together. They first recorded with Sam Lenin's Red Heads [ 1 , 2 ] on February 26, , of which band Nichols would become leader later that year.
That group didn't include Mole , however, in its first session on December 8, , yielding two tracks each of 'Washboard Blues' and 'That's No Bargain'. In one combination or another, Nichols would record scores of jazz records over the years with the Five Pennies. Besides Brunswick, Nichols also recorded for Edison, Victor, Bluebird, Variety and Okeh, working with just about every big name in jazz during his career. In Nichols quit the Casa Loma Orchestra to assist the war effort, working in shipyards, after which he reformed the Five Pennies to work clubs in Los Angeles.
In the early fifties he made a goodwill tour of Europe for the State Department. Nichols died on 28 June in Las Vegas. Discographies including the Red Heads and Five Pennies: 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5.
