Jimmy Wyble

Jimmy Wyble (b. Jan. 25, 1922, Port Arthur, Texas d. Jan. 16, 2010 Los Angeles, California) was playing western swing music in 1942 with guitarist Cameron Hill when Bob Wills hired both of them for his Texas Playboys. Wills called their sound "twin guitars". The results of this unique paring can be heard on Wills' Roly Poly. Wyble continued his association with western swing bands well into the 1950's when he released his first jazz album as leader, The Jimmy Wyble Quintet (1953). This recording had the unusual instrumentation of accordion, clarinet, guitar, bass and drums. That same year he recorded four sides with the Barney Kessel Quartet which are on the Swing Guitars album. During the late 1950's and early 1960's he toured with Benny Goodman and recorded with Red Norvo. His association with Red Norvo produced two outstanding albums of straight ahead jazz : Naturally and HiFive. In 1977 Jimmy Wyble made another album with unusual instrumentation: Jimmy Wyble & Love Bros. Jimmy Wyble enjoyed a long association with the studios in Los Angeles and he was also a member of Tony Rizzi's Five Guitars.

Jimmy Wyble Quintet - Diane (1953)

Very enjoyable music.

The quintet is playing jazz, but that mix of accordion & guitar reminds me a bit of The Three Suns, a pop Organ/Guitar/Accordion trio that sold a lot of records in the US in the early 1950s.

Very nice post. I love Bob Wills and I can't wait to hear this one from Bob's guitar player (Jimmy Wyble) as a leader.

@Mike Tempest - password is always Melanchthon

Kovina Kris said...

The archive is ok

getzoot said...

thanks fur this rare one. trying to type in bed

Kovina Kris said...

I'm sorry for my error Mel. I was typing in the password with a capital "M" but it worked just fine when I typed in the whole password in lower case. I thought I was getting an error because my unpacking utility was reporting "CRC Error or damaged archive" erroneously. Once again, sorry for the confusion and for any wasted time I may have caused you.

And thanks for your absolutley WONDERFUL blog!

Melanchthon said...

You're welcome Kovina Kris, thanks for your comments.

Mel, until I found your blog and a few others, such as jm and j62, for some reason I thought there were not many jazz records made before 1960 other than by very famous artists. Thank you for this education. Good stuff!

To Kovina Kris:
Thank You for Pass.
