Muggsy Spanier - cornet

Cornet player Muggsy Spanier was a member of the famed Austin High Gang and fell for jazz the minute he saw King Oliver playing live in Chicago. His first professional job came in 1921 with the Elmer Schoebel band.

In 1927 Muggsy cut his first sides with the Chicago Rhythm Kings alongside Frank Teschemacher on clarinet, Mezz Mezzrow on tenor saxophone, Gene Krupa on drums and Eddie Condon on banjo and vocals.
