Eddie Condon:China Boy

China Boy – Eddie Condon with Red Nichols 1929
When Eddie Condon recorded China Boy together with Jimmy McPartland tpt, Frank Teschemacher clt, Bud Freeman tenor sax, Joe Sullivan piano and Gene Krupa on drums on December 8 1927 he probably never realised he created a classic that some 80 years later is still a favourite tune played by bands today. Just a year later Eddie recorded it again, but here with Red Nichols on trumpet and Pee Wee Russell on clarinet. Pee Wee Russell admired Frank Teschemacher and musically followed in his footsteps. Both Red Nichols and Jimmy McPartland tried to play in the Bix Beiderbecke style which both enjoyed so much. Bix had joined the Paul Whiteman Band and also recorded this tune in 1929.
