After all, Murphys income was derived from the McGoons Club. A poor performer does little to help the bottom line. Musicians know who is a consistently good performer and they do not want any lightweights to sit in because that means the rest of the band has to work harder. Thats why the replacement band often included Bob Mielke, a superb trombone player and far from being a lightweight. He earned his reputation by working or sitting in with the following musicians and this is only a sample.Burt BalesGeorge LewisSidney BechetWingy ManoneMutt CareyTurk MurphyBaby DoddsAlbert NicholasPops FosterPat PattonEdmond HallWillie The Lion SmithBob HelmBob ScobeyEarl Fatha HinesMuggsy SpanierDarnell HowardJoe SullivanBunk JohnsonLu WattersJames P.
