  Jimmy Durante
Durante was part of the same wild crowd of early White jazz musicians as the Original Dixieland Jazz Band and Johnny Stein.
Durante was very impressed with the band and invited them to play at a club called the Alamo in Harlem where Jimmy played piano.
In 1921, Durante collaborated with an African-American songwriter by the name of Chris Smith on the songs "Let's Agree To Disagree" and "Daddy, Your Mama Is Lonesome For You" which were recorded by Mamie Smith.

 Jimmy Durante - Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
Despite Durante's impressive record of innovation, he was a victim of departmental budget cutbacks shortly after the beginning of the Great Depression, and was forced to find menial work as a jazz pianist, comedian, songwriter, film actor, and radio personality — anything that would pay the bills.
Guests on his show were often made the target of hilarious practical jokes, such as the episode in which actress Doris Day was given amnesia-inducing drugs, told that she was a human cleavis pin, and inserted into the front torsion bar of a John Deere Farm Tractor.
Durante is also considered the father of the "schnozzpop" genre, for which he was forced to pay child support in 1966.

 Jimmy Durante - Music Downloads - Online
By early 1916, Durante was working at the Club Alamo in Harlem and put together a sextet called 'Jimmy Durante's Original Jazz Novelty Band.' It was a noisy little combo to be sure, actually having to hold up signs when they played waltzes and fox trots so their ear-bludgeoned audience would know how to respond.
Legend has it that Durante was a shy man, unwilling to draw attention to himself because of the merciless teasing he had taken as a child about his looks.
Recreating Club Durant with Eddie Jackson for television brought Durante to a whole new audience who had never seen him work in a nightclub setting and proved to be enormously successful.
