[Dixielandjazz] Davison at Nick's

Forgot to ask Tom if it was Brad Gowans on trombone at Nick's (when
Davison joined Condon there) who taught WBD the "Dixieland" tunes. I
think it probably was.

Also wondered if my recollection that WBD did not like to be categorized
a "just a Dixieland player" was accurate. I got the sense that he felt
being known as a "Dixieland Musician" was much to limiting and that he
was "much more than just a Dixieland cornetist". (pretty close to his
words to me one night in Condon's)

Whatever, the man could surely play.
