What follows is a really transient resume of Elmer Talbert’s profession with because of “New Orleans Jazz – A Household Album by Dr. Edmond Souchon and Al Rose (Louisiana College Press)

In 1929 he was with the Arnold Depass Dance Orchestra. He had classes from Child Rena and generally labored with Rena’s Bass Band, and with Paul Barnes. He was, like many different musicians in New Orleans, a part-time musician and earned a dwelling working in a laundry. In 1947 he suffered a stroke however recovered effectively.

Between 1947 and his premature demise from one other stroke in late 1950, he made some exceptional recordings all with the George Lewis Band. On November 23 1949 a celebration was held at 1111 Bourbon St. by jazz fan Herb Otto. The whole George Lewis Band was there, with different musicians and jazz buffs current. Herb Otto and his good friend Bob Greenwood each had recording machines and far of the music was taped.

The entire band is in fact improbable however Elmer Talbert’s trumpet and his wonderful vocal on ” 2.19 Blues” and “Pallet On The Flooring” are Desert Island Discs for me!

Solely weeks afterward June 5 1950, the George Lewis Band with “Coo Coo” on trumpet made 4 tracks for the “Good Time Jazz” label. This was recorded in New Orleans and supervised by Jack Lewerke. In my view, that is a number of the very best quality with regard to the sound and stability of the George Lewis Band. I suppose there’s a diploma of non-public bias right here as a result of this model of “Burgundy Road Blues” was performed at my marriage ceremony to Diana Clark on the Ritz Carlton Lodge in New Orleans.
