After Louis Armstrong, the trumpet revolution was completed by
Henry "Red" Allen (1908), a New Orleans trumpeter who moved to New York in 1929
and became the second master of creative phrasing, both with
Luis Russell's orchestra and with his own orchestra, that cut
Biff'ly Blues (july 1929), Feeling Drowsy (july 1929) and
It Should Be You (july 1929).
Allen's and Russell's orchestras
represented the natural bridge between the New Orleans era and the swing era.
