Si Vous Plait – Kid Thomas’ Algier Stompers (Nelson, Barnes, Paul, James, Guenson, Butler, Penn)”


April 28,2022

From Jazzology Lp JCE 13 “Sonnets from Algiers” released in 1967, I haven’t been able to find the actual recording date. Band personnel: Kid Thomas Valentine, t; Louis Nelson, tbn; Paul Barnes, cl; Emanual Paul, tenor sax; John James, p; George Guenson, bj; Joseph Butler, sb; Sammy Penn, d. The penultimate photo in the video includes my usual reference to three sites and two magazines which make a massive contribution to the world of jazz. However I also never cease to be amazed at what YouTube channels offer and the award winning film “Piano Jazz – Chicago Style” (on Bob Morgan’s channel) featuring Ray Skjelbred it simply superb entertainment. Thanks go to Ray Skjelbred and Bob Morgan for bringing this to us.
