For more than 50 years, Jimmy Archey was one of the most professional, reliable and sought-after trombonists in jazz. He was already a veteran of the big bands of King Oliver, Luis Russell, Louis Armstrong and Benny Carter when he joined the This Is Jazz radio show in 1947 and soon established a new reputation as an original and distinctive dixieland trombonist. In this book, which tells the story of Jimmy’s remarkable career, his friends and fellow-musicians also pay tribute to this widely respected and well-loved jazz musician.
