Example text

More and more, his every waking moment reflects fascination with his mother’s keyboard skills. Two-steps, he recalls later, “were the rage, and mother could play them in swell style. ”8 In 1912, shortly after the birth of a second daughter, Martha Claire, Cyclone Carmichael found work in Bedford, some twenty miles south of Bloomington. His son speaks of it as if the family, uprooted again, had moved there and suffered for a year before returning to Bloomington, but that’s unlikely: Bedford is not far enough away to warrant such a convulsion, and no break appears in the boy’s public school records.

Immediately, a piercing yell broke loose from the crowd! No one marched; everyone broke into a wild swing, and Jordan’s changed the rhythm to a one-step. This was too much! When those “dinges” whipped that tune into a wild, almost blood-curdling shriek of weird harmony as they came into the last chorus, I got the spirit of jazz like a Congo medicine man. I wilted to the floor! I was half insane! Kate only stood there, hysterical . . At first, Jordan’s men acted like scared monkeys behind a cage; they had never seen anything like it, but they soon got the spirit themselves and were off again in a frenzy.

In late 1919 Batty headed east, soon joining up with Johnson and fellowHoosiers Gene (saxophone) and Dudley (mellophone) Fosdick. An early 1920s photo of a saxophone sextet sponsored by Paul Whiteman includes DeMarcus, Gene Fosdick, and the brilliant but now largely forgotten Loring McMurray, who made several outstanding records at the time but died young, before mid-decade. Between 1920 and 1923 DeMarcus enjoyed a successful New York career, working with major bands and recording widely. In 1923 he accepted an invitation to join the house band at London’s Savoy Hotel, the Savoy Orpheans, alongside fellow-Americans Al and Ray Starita and pianist-songwriter Carroll Gibbons.
