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)
