Riffs with Miff........Miff Moler Pt. 2............

w/ Pee Wee Russell

A little more of Miff Mole.....

Here's an interesting bit from :

Miff Mole and his Molers was basically a pseudonym for Red Nichols Five Pennies. They used this name when recording for the Okeh Company. Red Nichols and Miff Mole were one of the most prolific recording teams in the 1920s. Their cool, thoughtful style sometimes called the New York School or Chamber Jazz, left many Jazz critics and musicians cold, but in retrospect I think you can hear that they were on to something. In many ways they were exploring similar ideas as George Gershwin was, but in a more hip and swinging way. Their version of Imagination is a successful example of what they were trying to do. It might not be the hottest Jazz in the world, but it is very chic and urbane, a little time capsule of 1920's sophistication. Things got a little rougher when the Austin High Gang blew into town fresh from Chicago on the 1929 tracks, with Shim-Me-Sha-Wabble and Windy City Stomp. Four other Molers songs were released as Sophie Tucker accompanied by Miff Moles Molers
