"Miss Lil" was Lillian Hardin, pianist / composer / bandleader, later wife to Mr. Louis Armstrong -- and the woman who helped move his career along. (Would he have been second cornetist to Joe Oliver for ten years more without Lil's forceful encouragement?) Her songs are vivid and their recordings are wonderfully lively -- reconsidered here at the 2012 Whitley Bay Classic Jazz Party by Matthias Seuffert, clarinet; Stephane Gillot, alto sax; Bent Persson, cornet; Jens Lindgren, trombone; Martin Seck, piano; Martin Wheatley, banjo; Malcolm Sked, bass. Recorded by Michael Steinman for JAZZ LIVES (http://www.jazzlives.wordpress.com.).
