That's too bad about Joe Sullivan, a fine stride pianist and the composer of "Little Rock Getaway." Jack Teagarden (who also played with the All Stars) was probably at least as drunk, but knew how to stay on his feet. Prior to Earl Hines, the original pianist for the All Stars was Dick Cary, who quit after 8 months because he was tired of playing the same songs every night. In addition to being an excellent pianist and brass player, Cary was a brilliant composer and arranger whose musical scope was somewhat limited in the traditional settings in which he most often found work.

Marty's a man of many facets and fascinating memories; funny, outspoken, Napoleonic and complex, he's the perfect interviewee.

Marc, thank you so much for this series. Napoleon's stories are an insightful riot, and stopping to consider what these guys sacrifice to go out on the road and bring joy to their fans puts their art in a whole new light.

So glad I found this site, I lived right next door to this talented family, we got to hear all the singing and music playing for free!!!
Me (Marcie) and my two sisters Barbara and Patricia were always so happy when the music started playing and that was real "Music" a pure joy on our ears for sure : )
oh, how I miss those days! especially
Jo (Josephine) what a voice!!!!
