For that 16 note, clarinet like, trombone break by Miff Mole on the  
intro to Original Dixieland One Step (instead of the usual gliss) go  
to:  (It may not be available outside the USA since it's Rhapsody)


There is another version on Red Hot jazz which appears to be different  
as the trombone takes the first two breaks, but they are not as  
complicated as the one break on the Rhapsody version.


On the Rhapsody version Mole plays VERY cleanly, and when you hear the  
bass sax solo later.

I'm not sure when the Rhapsody version was recorded, but the one on  
Red Hot Jazz shows as June 1, 1928.

Perhaps Bill Haesler can tell us.
