In the 1950s, Red continued playing with a small band (quintet? )and even went out on extended State Dept.tours. This band used the wonderful Bill Wood on clarinet.

I am trying to locate more info regarding the later albums made with Red nichols
In particular: Red Nichols and the Five Pennies play Blues and old-time rags?
Is this still available somewhere???
Also looking for Richard Nelson the trombonist he had on the this album???

Great post. I know many contemporary jazz enthusiasts have given Red a second look and have looked beyond the negative remarks of earlier jazz purists. My first introduction to Red was on a Decca LP from the 1960s called "The Golden Horn of Jack Teagarden" which had four tracks from the Louisiana Rhythm Kings in 1929. I think these have since all been reissued on CD with much better quality.

What modes do I use to solo over what chords in Jazz?
In general, what modes do I use to solo over what chords in Jazz? Basically, what are some basic chords for each different mode that sound good when soloed over using that mode? And how do I tell what chords sound good with what mode? I am a guitarist.

Is it true that the the 5 pennies did NOT include a bass player - no string bass or no tuba? I don't see any mention in several write-ups about a bass instrument in this group.

My father, Joe Rushton, was with Nichols from the mid 1940's thru the 1950's. He played bass sax. That, as far as I can remember, was the only bass Nichols used for the sextet portion of his group. There were a few reordered ensembles for some studio recordings along the way, and they might have added a string bass once, but the bass sax was the prominent instrument.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed. Really a nice post here!

I think each sucessful musical group had / has a unique sound. In the type of music that Red Nichols played it was / is Joe Rushton's bass sax.
