Durante is probably one of the best, if not the best of the early White
ragtime pianists according to a reference I read once and now can't recall.
It may have been in G. Schuller's book. He did record but not much if I
remember correctly. He can be heard in an early Shirley Temple movie I
think and I saw him sing and play a bit of piano in a Buster Keaton talkie
not too long ago.

I just dusted off an old hi-fi LP entitled "Eddie Jackson!" He's back by
"his Dixielanders." No mention that I can find of the musicians' names.
