The faces of Freddie Moore

Freddie Moore is the drummer on Sidney Bechet's "Tiger Rag" (Blue Note, 1949), where he can be heard blowing on the snare drum (from 1:08 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.
