Louis Armstrong and the All Stars 1951 The Hucklebuck: Live recording in concert January 30, 1951, Civic Auditorium, Pasadena, CA issued as "Just Jazz" and rereleased in 1955 as a part of the Decca CD set, "The California Concerts" (1951 and 1955) Vocal by Velma Middleton. The Hucklebuck: Paul "Hucklebuck" Williams (July 13, 1915 -- September 14, 2002) was an American blues and rhythm and blues saxophonist and songwriter. In his Honkers and Shouters, Arnold Shaw credits Williams as one of the first to employ the honking tenor sax solo that became the hallmark of rhythm and blues and rock and roll in the 1950s and early 1960s. After performing with Clarence Dorsey and King Porter he formed his own band in 1947. He was best known for his 1949 hit, "The Hucklebuck", a twelve-bar blues that also spawned a dance craze. The single went to number one on the U.S. Billboard R&B chart. He used the billing of Paul Williams and his Hucklebuckers thereafter. Charlie Parker had four years earlier used the same riff for his "Now's the Time". The Band: Louis Armstrong Tp Voc; Jack Teagarden Tb Voc; Barney Bigard Cl; Earl Hines Pn; Arvell Shaw Bs; Cozy Cole Dr; Velma Middleton Voc. Track 07 of 18 Submitted ULAJAZZ
