Younger brother of fellow drummer Tubby Hall, Small Hall was best-known for his longtime association with Kid Ory. He analyzed at New Orleans University or college until 1914 and played his 1st professional work with Child Ory. Hall freelanced numerous groups (like the First-class Music group) before shifting to Chicago in 1918. He caused Lawrence Duhe’s music group (replacing sibling Tubby) before becoming drafted in to the Military (1918-1919). Hall rejoined the group (that was right now led by Ruler Oliver) in 1921, playing 8 weeks in SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA before time for Chicago. In 1926, he was with Jimmy Noone before time for California and dealing with Mutt Carey’s Jeffersonians (1927-1632). Over time using the Winslow Allen Music group, a while spent beyond music, another six-month stint in the Military (1942), Hall became a fixture with Child Ory’s Creole Jazz Music group (1945-1956) where his constant playing was a solid asset. He was an associate of Ory’s group until pressured to retire because of ill health. Small Hall, who by no means led his personal recording program (but made many excellent information with Ory), made an appearance with Louis Armstrong and Child Ory in the 1946 film New Orleans; he also documented with Armstrong that 12 months.
