Richard Shook asked about Ira Ironstrings personnel.

Bill Haesler can probably tell us who the personnel with Ira  
Ironstrings (Alvino Rey) were, but here is my guess as to some of  
them. I think a lot of the ira Ironstrings music was recorded with  
Warner Brothers studio players who were also a part of a Dixieland  
band Matty Matlock fronted at the time.

Matty Matlock,  clarinet/sax/arranger

Stan Wrightsman or Lou Busch (a/k/a Joe Fingers Carr), piano

Nick Fatool, drummer

Johnny Best or Shorty Sherlock, trumpets

Abe Lincoln or Moe Schneider, trombones

Alvino Rey, banjo
