Note: Glenny recalls playing with Buddy Bolden – describes him a "very jolly fellow" who would "drink plenty." He and Dr. Bechet agree that Bolden "went crazy in the crazy house, and he died." Glenny explains the difference between Bolden on one hand and Manuel Perez and John Robichaux on the other – Bolden played raggy with "all kinds of foolishness," whereas the others "didn't jazz so much." He was the most popular musician in town around 1896, and the hottest. A brief discussion of Buddy Petit, and Sidney Bechet's influence on him.
