Wilbur De Paris : Muskrat Ramble

Muskrat Ramble deParis Wilbur 1958

Wilbur deParis and his New New Orleans Jazz
Muskrat Ramble is the first tune in a set of four from a TV broadcast in 1958. Only 4 members of the actual band were hired to do the broadcast. Next to Wilber deParis on trombone there are Sidney deParis on trumpet and cornet, Omer Simeon on clarinet and Wilbert Kirk on drums.
They were augmented by the studio house band. Excellent pianist Billy Taylor certainly plays some fine stride piano with Wendell Lowe on guitar and Eddie Safranski on bass. These are the only video clips that I know with Omer Simeon. What a treat to not only hear but also watch this formidable musician who was in the bands of King Olive, Jelly Roll Morton and Luis Russell in the twenties and thirties and certainly has set his stamp stylistically on the deParis Band in the fifties
