    The Charleston Chasers were often a pseudonym for Red Nichols Five Pennies, but Columbia also used the name for a.o. the Original Memphis Five. The records had an all-star cast. On this 1929 issue we hear a brilliant Eva Taylor, a talented entertainer and Blues singer. She started out as child actor in a traveling revue that toured visiting Europe, Australia and New Zealand between 1900 and 1920. In 1920 she moved to New York, where she became a popular singer in the night clubs of Harlem. The following year she married pianist, publisher and producer Clarence Williams. The couple collaborated on many projects, including dozens of songs, a musical revue called "Bottomland", and radio programs. They remained married until Williams' death in 1965. Although Taylor retired in the 40's, we see her in footage shot only two years before her death, performing with the Peruna Jazzmen, an awesome Danish band performing classic jazz. Check them out at
