RED NICHOLS

Nichols’ band started with Mole on trombone and Jimmy Dorsey on alto saxophone and clarinet. Other musicians in his bands in the following decade included Benny Goodman (clarinet), Glenn Miller (trombone), Jack Teagarden (trombone), Pee Wee Russell (clarinet), Joe Venuti (violin), Eddie Lang (banjo and guitar), and Gene Krupa (drums). The Five Pennies’ version of “Ida, Sweet as Apple Cider” was a surprise hit record. It sold over a million copies and was awarded a gold disc by the Recording Industry Association of America.
