Jim Robinson

Jim Robinson was a very reliable New Orleans trombonist who was much more consistent than most of the musicians he performed with, never seeming to have an off day. A jazz pioneer, Robinson played guitar as a child and started playing trombone in 1917, while stationed in France during World War I; he was already 24. He started working in New Orleans in 1919 with Kid Rena, the Golden Leaf Band, and the Tuxedo Band. In 1923, Robinson became part of the Morgan band which, under Sam Morgan's leadership, had a recording session in 1927. He was a fixture in New Orleans for decades, playing with many local groups while working days in the 1930s as a longshoreman. Robinson was part of Kid Rena's 1940 recording session and joined Bunk Johnson's band in 1942, meeting up with George Lewis. He returned to New Orleans with Lewis in 1946, and was a part of Lewis' popular band during the 1950s and '60s, touring the world and recording extensively. He was the top musician in the Preservation Hall Jazz Band in the 1970s, staying active until his death at age 83. Jim Robinson recorded as a leader for AM (1944), Riverside (1961), Atlantic, Pearl, Jazz Crusade, and finally Smoky Mary (January 1976). ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

I was introduced to Big Jim Robinson by buying the Sweet Emma Disneyland album in 1966 in the NOLA airport. Niver met him, but love his playing, and wore that album out over the next 45 years. Still have it, and our youngest son, Charlie now plays in NOLA on Frenchman street with Mescihya Lake, Palmetto Bug Stompers, Panorama Jazz Band, and others -- yep he plays trombone, and Big Jim is his inspiration.

We heard Jim play with the PHJB in Atlanta Ga. on Jan. 10th 1970. The sweetest trombone I have ever heard! It almost brings tears to my eyes just remembering his stellar performance. My number one favorite musician.

Likewise, maybe 1964 or thereabouts my buddy and I wandered in off the street into a place called preservation hall. There was this very happy young red haired man holding a hat for donations at the door. I think we dropped a dollar in, if we had that much and sat down on old rough wooden benches and watched some old guys up front unpack their instruments. People started drifting in. Soon a guy named Willie tapped his toe twice and the old guys started playing and the world exploded with joy.
I had the great pleasure of hearing Jim Robinson, Sweet Emma, and other legendaries at the New Orleans Preservation Hall one nite during the 1970s. I mean they played & played & played, never growing tired. Most of them in them, as I recall, were in their 70s & 80s & performing marvelously! I've one of their albums, I bought that memorable nite.
edrose mentioned baby dodds. I was with a friend one night who brought baby dodds down to the central plaza hotel to take a bow with conrad janis and his tailgate jazz band. I remember having a beer with Omer Simeon between sets of the DeParis Brothers band on 52d st. probably at 3 deuces or jimmy ryan's. jim robinson played with the band that made the best dixieland album ever, pound for pound: Jelly and his red hot peppers. norm vance
I was lucky enough in the 40s to catch Jim Robinson at the Stuyvesant Casino in New York many times. He was playing with Bunk Johnson band which included George Lewis and his magic clarinet, Alcide "Slow Drag" Pavageau (bass). Don Ewell the only white man was on piano, Baby Dodds on the drums. I think there was also a string .... banjo or guitar but I can't remember who played.

Later in years, I hung out at the Beverly Cavern in Los Angeles to hear Kid Ory. Teddy Buckner was with him at the tim
