I want a Little Girl - Bill Coleman 1972
One of my favourite swing trumpet players was Bill Coleman (1904-1981). I compare him in line with Buck Clayton, Frankie Newton and Red Allen. Unfortunately there are not many films of him.
He lived for a large part of his life in France and missed some of the international glory the others had. In a French TV program called Jazz Harmonie Bill plays trumpet. Marc Hemmeler piano, Jimmy Gourley guitar, Pierre Sim bass and Michel Silva drums.
