Wingy Manone & His Orch. - Black Coffee (Al Hoffman /Maurice Sigler/Al Goodhart), Vocalion 1935
---------------------------------
Joseph "Wingy" MANONE (born 1904 in New Orleans, died 1982 in Las Vegas). Excellent Dixieland trumpeter, vocalist (his jivey vocals were somewhat reminiscent of his contemporary, Louis Prima) and a bandleader. He earned the name "Wingy" when he lost his right arm in a accident between two streetcars at the age of ten. Manone later started teaching himself to play the trumpet, to become a professional at the age of 17 playing in riverboat bands. Manone later worked in Chicago and New York, was a member of the Crescent City Jazzers ( Mobile, Alabama), and recorded with the group Arcadian Serenaders. He recorded as a leader in 1927, and his 1930 piece "Tar Paper Stomp" had a riff that would later be the basis for Glenn Miller's hit "In the Mood". Manone worked with Ray Miller, Charlie Straight, and Speed Webb, and in 1934 started recording quite prolifically in New York. He made many records during 1934-41 with freewheeling combos that were popular during the era. Some of his records included such greats as tenors Eddie Miller, Bud Freeman and Chu Berry, clarinetists Matty Matlock, Joe Marsala, and Buster Bailey, and trombonists George Brunies, Santo Pecora, and Jack Teagarden. In 1940 Manone moved to Los Angeles, and he appeared on the radio regularly with Bing Crosby. In 1954 he moved to Las Vegas, recorded regularly until 1960, visited Europe in the 1960s, and was active until the mid-1970s, always playing freewheeling, and cheerful jazz.
