This is the first biography of jazz trumpeter and singer, Henry "Red" Allen, Louis Armstrong's chief rival in the early days of New Orleans jazz. Both men were born in New Orleans, but the similarities stopped there.While Armstrong recorded many best-selling records, Allen was sometimes daringly experimental and never achieved hit parade success. Gradually, however, his music won him an international following, and, during the 1960's, he frequently toured Europe to wide acclaim. Years after his death in 1967 his popularity continues to grow. Many of his recordings are still available and this volume provides a selected discography.Musician and veteran jazz writer, John Chilton, was a close friend of Allen's and conveys the trumpeter's complex personality while recounting his stints with bands led by Armstrong, Fletcher Henderson, King Oliver, and others. Previously unknown details of Allen's early years in New Orleans and on the Mississippi riverboats are revealed and Chilton contrasts Allen's spectacular performance showmanship with his off-stage reticence to create a rich portrait of the man.
New Orleans joys; a trip to the north; riverboat days; a musical furnace; star soloist; the blueprints of swing; the great understudy; bold bandleader; super showman; metropole magic; European debut; four's company; triumphant tours; a Valian farewell.
John Chilton divides his time between being a professional jazz trumpeter and writing books on jazz. In 2000 he won the British Jazz Award for Writer of the Year. His books include Billie's Blues (on Billie Holiday), The Wizard of Jazz (on Sidney Bechet), and Let the Good Times Roll (on Louis Jordan). Both his Who's Who of Jazz (Storyville to Swing Street) and his Who's Who of British Jazz have been hailed as the best reference works of their kind. Down Beat magazine calls Chilton "a master of the craft of research."
"this excellent book...includes nearly 20 fine photos, a selected discography by Brian Peerless and an index." - International Association of Jazz Record Collectors Journal--Sanford Lakoff
