On January 28, 1930, King Oliver and His Orchestra recorded a version of
"St. James Infirmary". I was impressed by the quality of the trumpet solos
and was pleasantly surprised to learn that Oliver was joined on trumpet by
Henry "Red" Allen and Bubber Miley. I believe that all three took solos on
this recording. Can anyone tell me the sequence of the soloists? Also, who
soloed behind the dreary vocalist? My guess: Joe Oliver or Bubber Miley.

Thanks in advance;
