 Ragbaby Stevens - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1918 Kelly brought his "Jass Band", including Ragbaby, Alcide Nunez, and Tom Brown (trombonist) to New York City to fill in for the Original Dixieland Jass Band at Reisenweber's Cafe.
After the Kelly Jazz Band won greater approval from the crowds at a "Battle of the Bands" Ragbaby found his drum head's slashed, and he took the next train back to Chicago and never again headed east.
Stevens was a regular on the Chicago jazz scene into the 1920s; early in the decade he was reunited with clarinetist Alcide Nunez playing in the house band at the noted jazz venue (and speakeasy) "Kelly's Stables".

 Original Dixieland Jass Band   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Trumpeter Nick LaRocca convinced himself, in his old age, that this was literally true, but there is no evidence from the interviews and writings of the other O.D.J.B. members that the rest of the band ever considered it anything more than a snappy advertising slogan.
In early 1916 a promoter from Chicago aproached clarinetist Alcide Nunez and drummer Johnny Stein about bringing a New Orleans style band to Chicago, where a similar band led by trombonist Tom Brown was already enjoying success.
LaRocca and Nunez had personality conflicts, and on October 30 Tom Brown's Band and the ODJB mutually agreed to switch clarinetists, bringing Larry Shields into the Original Dixieland Jass Band.

 Alcide Nunez & The Louisiana Five   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The recordings of the the Louisiana Five (and Nunez's later recordings) are, in my opinion, too seldom re-issed and too often ignored by jazz historians.
Both Nunez and LaRocca were known for rearranging the context in which a strain appears.
The Louisiana 5 is suplimented by a cornet on this side; the musician is Bernard Berhendson, also known as Bernie Berhendson or "Doc" Berhendson, born in New Orleans in 1890.

Such an arrogant dismissal makes it seem that Tosches, ever eager to disguise himself as an authoritative researcher (albeit one who routinely relies on hired hands), blithely tried to fib his way out of the charge.
Perhaps the most dismal aspect of the whole sordid affair is Tosches' failure to review Nunez's actual testimony during the original case discussed in Tosches' book; it has as much metaphoric power as Whitcomb's florid creations.
(Nunez spoke of "hashing up the real power blues.") Then again, as Pietsch wrote, "Tosches' original research, thoughts and interpretation are clearly demonstrated in Where Dead Voices Gather.

Pee Wee Russell was born in St. Louis, Missouri and grew up in Muskogee, Oklahoma.
After several false musical starts (he tried piano, drums, and violin with no extended interest), at age 12 he heard and was inspired by the clarinetist Alcide "Yellow" Nunez and his band the Louisiana Five.
Nunez had once been a member of the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, and he played more in the style of a lead trumpeter than a clarinetist, in that he preferred to play the melody rather than embellish it.
