    B, no doubt Hopkins was an excellent orchestra, it's just that (as you point out), competition was so extremely strong in those days. Alberta Hunter (89 yrs) and Sam Wooding (90 yrs) definitely died happy, otherwise they wouldn't have reached that age :-)

    P: I think Hopkins was a very good orchestra (A-) but just lacked that stunning edge that Ellington Armstrong and Henderson could magically create. Fame was so close and the road to fame can be frustrating and unforgiving but is usually correct. He should not have died dispirited after his achievements. Just look at the number of great musicians such as Alberta Hunter and Sam Wooding who quit show biz to pursue other careers (and died happy)!

    Now that I think of it , it was Jimmie Lunceford that did "Hells Bells" . It was all good ~
