If Oliver was playing 2 beat, maybe that is one of the reasons for his
diminished popularity in the late 1920s and afterwards?


Suggest you go to www.redhotjazz.com and search for the Dixie Syncopators
and listen to some of the music found there. (Farewell Blues, Dr. Jazz and
others) My point is that this music has the "West Coast" feel long before Lu
Watters came along.
