[Dixielandjazz] Elephant Stomp

        A google search turned up St. Gery as the site (a streat or
section?) in Brussels
featuring jazz and similar entertainments. Alferay appears in a discussion
of guitar
players Reinhart and Matelot (a reference I don't understand indicates
Alferay may
have been a play on words ""jeu de mot") relative to Matelot's name.
Lends a bit of credence to the psuedonym and French (language) source of the
composer credits.

The German organisation GEMA (copyright etc.) suggested that St. Gery and
Alferay are pseudonyms. Perhaps the title is from French origin. Humphrey
Lyttelton announces it on the LP/CD as "Stomp d'éléphant". A joke or did he
know it comes from France?
