Biography & Discography - Albert Warner
By Jeff S. Domann
"Old School Trombone"

Some jazz critics have not been kind to Albert Warner. Notable reviewers have described his trombone playing as "atrocious", "very poor" and "dull". I can see why many have such a low opinion of his abilities. He essentially plays a simple bass line on the trombone. On the few occasions when he does solo, he often plays the same passage he performed in the ensemble. In comparison to Jim Robinson he is "dull" and next to a highly trained trombonist he is "very poor".

His generation grew up listening to the great parade bands and learned to play before solos were common (or possibly even invented). Albert Warner left behind a small by very enjoyable contribution to the world of jazz and to ignore his unique style on the trombone would be to overlook an entire generation of New Orleans players.

Albert Warner was born in New Orleans on New Years Eve 1890. His father was a bass player but Albert didn't start on the trombone until he was in his twenties. He took lessons from Honore Dutrey and Ulysses Jackson and his first jobs were in the early 20s with the Bull's Club band. He performed with many of the city's finest dance bands including those of "Big Eye" Louis Nelson, "Kid" Henry Rena, "Wooden" Joe Nicholas, Chris Kelly, Buddy Petit and the Camelia band with Elmer Talbert.

In 1932 he became a regular member of the Eureka Brass Band and performed with them for the remainder of his life. It is his association with the Eureka for which he will be best remembered. Albert and Charles "Sunny" Henry were quite a trombone duo for the mighty Eureka as their many recordings together show. Certainly the Eureka was the best medium for Albert's powerful, functional trombone playing and it must have been quite an event to see and hear him marching in the streets.

Albert Warner's first recording session happened in 1942 when he laid down a number of tracks with the Bunk Johnson Band. Jim Robinson was the trombonist on Bunk's very first recordings several months prior, and some unfairly compared Albert's playing with the much flashier Robinson. Although not one of Bunk's greatest sessions, the band did produce some classic sides such as "Thriller Rag", "Dusty Rag", "Big Cheif Battle Axe", "Franklin Street Blues" and others. Considering Bunk Johnson and Jim Robinson's mutual dislike for each other, perhaps the road for the Bunk Johnson Band (which would get ugly in a few years in New York) would have been a little less rocky if Albert had stayed in the trombone chair.

Albert was also present on the Eureka Brass Band's first recordings in August 1951. Recorded in an alley, the session is the very first documentation of a regular working New Orleans brass band. Although the Eureka would later be recorded under much better conditions by Atlantic Records, these powerful sides have become favorites of many fans.

When Presevation Hall opened in the early 60s, Albert Warner could be found performing there with Kid Sheik's band, Billie and DeDe Pierce and others. He was also a frequent performer at Ken Mills' Icon Hall. His recordings at this time were plentiful and he was often in the company of "old time" trumpeter Charlie Love. He played with Charlie in the Love-Jiles Ragtime Orchestra and recorded with him a very enjoyable and charming (if ragged) session under the title "Kid Sheik with Charlie Love and his Cado Jazz Band" (504 Records CDS 21).

As the 60s rolled on Albert began touring with various Preservation Hall bands. He went to Cleveland in 1961 with Kid Sheik's Storyville Ramblers, to Washington, D.C. with the Eureka Brass Band in 1962 and with Billie and DeDe Pierce he ventured to New York in 1962 and Memphis in 1965.

Albert Warner kept gigging around New Orleans until his death on September 10, 1966 playing the various kitty halls and parading in the streets. Although he is now a quite obscure jazz figure and has been mostly forgotten, his recordings continue to be issued on CD. Right now there are well over 150 of Albert's performances available on compact disc with more being released every year. Let us hope that the time has come for the wonderful old school trombone of Albert Warner to be appreciated by a greater audience.
