I thought this hardly known band definitely deserves a second post. Fred Hamm was a Chicago jazz orchestra leader who performed at the Marigold Garden in Chicago from 1923 to 1925. In 1925 he took over the leadership of the Benson Orchestra, founded by Edgar Benson. He sang and played the cornet. Among the members of his band were Dave Bennett (who played clarinet and alto saxophone), Chauncey Gray (piano), and Bert Lown (violin). With Bennett, Gray, and Lown, he co-wrote "Bye Bye Blues" in early 1925. Fred Hamm recorded again in 1929 under the name of Fred Hamm and his Collegians. This outstanding recording was made in 1925. Vocal by Fred Hamm himself

Indeed Jack, whereas Sweatman was very traditional, this band clearly had an advanced sound.

Nice mid 20s sound. Hamm's style was more contemporary than Sweatman's in 1925. One group moving forward with the times while the other was holding onto an earlier format.
