PHIL NAPOLEON picture
Phil Napoleon was a classically trained trumpet player, but he turned his back the concert hall and formed The Original Memphis Five with pianist Frank Signorelli in 1917. The band was one of the most popular and prolific outfits of the 1920's and featured the trombone playing of Miff Mole. They recorded hundreds records under their own name and a variety of a pseudonyms, including Bailey's Lucky Seven, The Southland Six, Ladd's Black Aces, Jazzbo's Carolina Serenaders, Charleston Chasers and Napoleon's Emperors. The Original Memphis Five broke up in 1928 and Phil began making his living as a studio musician until 1937 when he formed his own orchestra, but it didn't go anywhere and he soon returned to session and studio work. In 1946 he got a call from Jimmy Dorsey who was in desperate need of a trumpet player, due to the draft. He joined him in L.A. You read more...
