That Moaning Saxophone

Oxford University Press

In 1917, records by other saxophone ensembles (the Saxo Sextette and Wilbur Sweatman and His Jass Band) entered into competition with the Six Brown Brothers' Victors, and four solo sides by Fred Brown were issued by Columbia. In the summer, the Browns entertained at the Bismarck Gardens in Chicago, and that fall they opened in a new Fred Stone/C. B. Dillingham Broadway hit called Jack o' Lantern, with Theresa Valerio in a featured role. This chapter describes the show. By the end of 1918, both Fred and Verne were in the American military.
