1927-1928

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Loring "Red" Nichols was an expert cornet player, a solid improviser, and apparently a workaholic, since he is rumored to have appeared on over 4,000 recordings during the 1920s alone. One of the ways he managed this feat was by appearing under countless different names, and in the case of this collection covering the years 1927 and 1928, he made recordings as Red Nichols & His 5 Pennies, the Six Hottentots, Red & Mill's Stompers, and Red Nichols' Stompers.

Loring "Red" Nichols was an expert cornet player, a solid improviser, and apparently a workaholic, since he is rumored to have appeared on over 4,000 recordings during the 1920s alone. One of the ways he managed this feat was by appearing under countless different names, and in the case of this collection covering the years 1927 and 1928, he made recordings as Red Nichols & His 5 Pennies, the Six Hottentots, Red & Mill's Stompers, and Red Nichols' Stompers. Pay no attention to whether there were five Pennies or six Hottentots, since Nichols' groups tended to be eight or ten pieces or more, no matter what the moniker read, and usually featured longtime associates Miff Mole on trombone, Jimmy Dorsey on clarinet or alto sax, and the marvelous Dudley Fosdick on mellophonium. This collection features one of the biggest hits of Nichols' career, "Ida, Sweet as Apple Cider," and like "Cornfed," also collected here, it effortlessly combines a sophisticated arrangement with a kind of easy, down-home feel that masks its complexities. Although critics often brush right by him, Nichols was always a fresh and innovative arranger and bandleader.
