A talented high-note trumpeter and a favorite bandleader, Erskine Hawkins was nicknamed “the 20th Hundred years Gabriel.” He discovered drums and trombone before switching to trumpet when he was 13. While going to the Alabama Condition Teachers University, he became the first choice of the faculty music group, the ‘Bama Condition Collegians. They visited NY in 1934, became the Erskine Hawkins Orchestra, began making information in 1936, and by 1938 had been quite effective. With Hawkins and Dud Bascomb posting the trumpet solos, Paul Bascomb or Julian Dash noticed on tenors, Haywood Henry on baritone, and pianist Avery Parrish, this is a solidly swinging music group that happy dancers and jazz supporters alike. Hawkins acquired three major strikes (“Tuxedo Junction,” “After Hours,” and “Tippin’ In”) and could keep carefully the big music group together completely until 1953; a few of their afterwards sessions were even more R&B-oriented yet hardly ever without jazz curiosity. Hawkins led an inferior device during his last few years (the survivors from the big music group had a documented reunion in 1971) as well as the trumpeter continued working in to the 1980s.
