Dear Don and Bill:
Mole was special. Since you both probably have the record, listen to
his 16 note break on Original Dixieland One Step. Okeh- circa 1926/7 -
Miff Mole and His Little Molers
Instead of the "traditional" two bar smear on the intro, he does a
beautiful and very cleanly executed 15/16 note break. Now that's
BTW: Since Mole recorded prior to Kid Ory, why do we always say Mole
changed the Ory canon. Why don't we say Ory changed the Mole canon?
<grin> (just kidding)
