Good Time Jazz

The Firehouse Five plus Two: Good Time Jazz (sometimes listed as "Part Two"). Mentioned in liner notes on back that this was recorded in 1950. Illustrator listed as "Le Goullon."


[Update: even though liner notes say: "During 1950 (when the eight numbers on this LP were recorded)...", I've been told that the LP was probably packaged and released in 1953.]


Danny Alguire: coronet

Harper Goff: banjo

Ward Kimball: trombone

Clarke Mallery: clarinet

Monte Mountjoy: drums

Ed Penner: tuba

Frank Thomas: piano


The Firehouse Five plus Two was a dixieland jazz band that played around the LA area (and beyond) from the late 40s til the 60s. The band is of particular interest to us animators mainly because most of the members worked at Disney at the same time - most particularly, Ward Kimball and Frank Thomas, two of Disney's "Nine Old Men." Clark Mallery and Ed Penner also worked there, while Harper Goff was an art designer for several movies (The Thing).
