The faces of Freddie Moore


Drummer Freddie Moore (1900-1992), pictured by William P. Gottlieb.
He's the drummer on Sidney Bechet's "Tiger Rag" (Blue Note, 1949),
where he can be heard blowing on the snare drum (from 1:30 onwards.)

Freddie's favorite was performing "Snowball"
I also miss him running a big comb through his bald head, an entertainer left over from Vaudeville.
