Adrian Cox's Sunday Service - May 31

Adrian Cox (clarinet, vocals)

A Barney Bigard special this week. From Morton to a long stint in the Ellington band to forties' recordings and beyond, Adrian Cox plotted Barney Bigard's career with numerous musical illustrations - My Little Dixie Home, Clarinet Lament, a collaboration with the little known Roger Kay (Adrian consulted Alyn Shipton) on Soft and Warm and Portrait of Louise. Cox played clarinet and sang on Do You Know What it Means to Miss New Orleans? inspired by Bigard's part in the 1947 film New Orleans working on screen alongside Louis, Billie, Zutty, Kid Ory, Red Callender and Woody Herman, to name just a few. 

Hollywood, working the Crescendo Club with Kid Ory and Edmund Hall dropping by to Bigard's final recording in the mid seventies with Barry Martyn in the Pelican Trio. And the Pelican Trio session prompted Adrian to sing Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams - excellent! One more number, but first thanking Alyn Shipton, Pete Lay, Evan Christopher, Victor Goines and others for biographical info etc, Bigard's signature tune Mood Indigo. Be sure to take a socially distant Facebook pew next week - Sunday, one o'clock - for Adrian Cox's Sunday Service.
