According to "Jazz West II", your information about Pico Vallese is correct
for the Chicago Loopers, Kid Ory, and Nappy Lamare. While he may have subbed
in these other bands from time to time, I'm not aware of any other

> I am seeking information about Rico Vallese, a cornet/trumpet player who
came from Providence, RI, but who lived and worked on the West Coast. Did
anybody out there know him, or work with him etc.? The only examples of his
playing that I have heard were the sides made by "LaVere's Chicago Loopers"
for the Jump label 2/21/50. but he apparently recorded
> with Joe Alexander 6/2/47, Kid Ory 2/20/54 (recorded at the "Hangover
Club"), and "the Okeefenokee Jug Band"November 1954.I have a notation that
at some point he worked with Bud Freeman,Ben Pollack, and Rosy Mc Hargue,
but did not make a note of where I got this information from.
