Description
Recounting his boyhood in Nashville, his pioneer work as a saxophonist in 1920s Chicago and his star career as a trumpet soloist, the ex-Calloway trumpeter Doe Cheatham offers us this account of his life.

Cheatham's colourful life encompasses the whole history of jazz. Written in the year of his 90th birthday, this autobiography looks back over a career in which he deputized for Louis Armstrong in the 1920s and made sound recordings with Blues empress Ma Rainey. He was among the pioneers of Black American music in Europe, coming to Berlin in the 1920s with Sam Wooding's Chocolate Kiddies, with whom he recorded in Barcelona and Paris. He then joined, in quick succession, two of the biggest bands of the 1930s: McKinney's Cotton Pickers and the Cab Calloway Orchestra, the hightest-earning band in the USA.
