NOTE: Irving Milfred MOLE (Miff Mole) (b. 1898 in Roosevelt, NY d. 1961 in NYC) American jazz trombonist and band leader. He is generally considered as one of the greatest jazz trombonists and credited with creating “the first distinctive and influential solo jazz trombone style”. As a child, he studied violin and piano and switched to trombone when he was 15. After he played in Gus Sharp’s Orchestra for two years, early in the 1920s Miff Mole become a significant figure of the New York scene: he was a member of the Original Memphis Five (1922), played with Russ Gorman, Roger Wolfe Kahn, Sam Lanin, Ray Miller and many others. He also worked for silent film and radio orchestras. In 19269 Mole and trumpeter Red Nichols led a band called “Miff Mole and his Little Molers”. They recorded frequently until 1930.
Miff Mole and his band the Molers backed Sophie Tucker who was known as “The Last Of The Red Hot Mammas” and who was one of the most popular singers of the Teens and 1920s. In addition to the groups under his own name, Mole was prominently identified from 1925 to 1929 with various recording bands led by cornetist Red Nichols: The Red Heads, The Hottentots, The Charleston Chasers, The Six Hottentots, The Cotton Pickers, Red and Miffs Stompers, and especially Red Nichols and his Five Pennies. Among the musicians who passed through the Five Pennies were clarinetist Pee Wee Russell, violinist Joe Venuti, bass sax player Adrian Rollini, trombonist-arranger Glenn Miller, and extra trumpet players such as Leo McConville and Charlie Teagarden.

When Jack Teagarden arrived in New York in 1928, he quickly replaced Mole as the new role model for trombonists, with a more legato, blues-oriented approach. In 193840 Mole was a member of Paul Whiteman’s orchestra, but his style by then had changed under the influence of Teagarden. In 19423 Mole played in Benny Goodman’s orchestra, and between 19427 he led various dixieland bands. Due to bad health, Mole played very sporadically during his last years.He became a regular at Nick’s in Manhattan, where he played with Pee Wee Russell, Baby Dodds, and others. Miff Mole died—broke—in New York City in 1961. A benefit gig to raise money for him took place just too late. He was buried in a pauper’s grave.”
