Back in the late ‘40s, Houston Post columnist Hubert Mewhinney memorably described Houston as “a whiskey and trombone town.” No doubt the King and Carter Jazzing Orchestra (pictured) contributed to that atmosphere.

This picture, taken in 1921, is all over the Internet, but I was unable to find out anything about these Jazzing fellows. Does anybody know anything about these guys? – John Nova Lomax
