Among the purest soloists in traditional jazz, Joe Darensbourg got some early schooling from New Orleans great Alphonse Picou. After using local groupings, and traveling using a medication present and a circus music group, Darensbourg resolved in LA and caused Mutt Carey’s Liberty Syncopators. He proved helpful in Seattle from 1929 to 1944, focusing on cruiselines, playing in after-hours night clubs and roadhouses, and support many non-jazz entertainers. Darensbourg resumed playing jazz in 1944, in a normal group with Johnny Wittwer. When he came back to LA, he documented with Child Ory and proved helpful briefly with R&B bandleader Joe Liggins. From 1947 to 1953 he worked exclusively with Child Ory, after that spent the others of his profession in traditional ensembles, dealing with such music artists as Gene Mayl, Teddy Buckner, and Louis Armstrong’s All-Stars. Darensbourg also led his personal groups, and experienced a hit using the track “Yellow Doggie Blues.” He toured using the Legends of Jazz from 1973 to 1975.
