Note: Glenny recalls the bands he played with over the years: the Imperial, Superior, Golden Rule, and Tuexdo bands; those of Happy Galloway and A. J. Piron; and in a string orchestra with Hippolyte Charles ("not no jazz man, but a very good cornet player," Dr. Bechet says). Lomax asks when he first heard jazz, and Glenny tells him that he and Charles Edgar, a violinist, "started" it. Used to play bass drum in parades but got too old for it. Recalls playing at the Pig Ankle and the Big 25.
