As I promised last week, I'll show you my current favourite version of One O'Clock Jump, it's by the Ernst Höllerhagen Quartett, recorded in 1943.
Ernst Höllerhagen (5.10.1912-11.7.1956) was a highly talented German clarinetist and saxophonist.
He played in several dance orchestras and belonged to the Original Teddies (by Teddy Stauffer) in 1939.
When Jazz was prohibited by the Nazis at the beginning of the Second World War he left Germany and went into exile in Switzerland.
In Switzerland he led his own band for a while, with the rhythm section of the former Teddy Stauffer Orchestra.
