Nice that you have given credit to Tommy Dorsey's marvelous trumpet playing. However, those Cotton Pickers sides have Tommy playing trombone, not trumpet. That's Phil Napoleon playing trumpet. I know that the information comes from Brian Rust, but unfortunately there are mistakes in those books, and although the identification of the players is generally correct on this session (J. Dorsey, Stan King for sure), as a trumpet player I KNOW that's not TD. I remember listening to these sides when I first became interested in TD's trumpet playing, and realized it wasn't him.
