Art Landry & His Orchestra - Rip-Saw Blues by kspm0220s Art Landry formed his first band in the early 20's. His orchestra subsequently toured America from coast to coast. Landry was a good clarinetist, and fronted the orchestra himself. For the rest, unfortunately little is known about him. Although he is said to have passed away in 1990 at the age of 100, his bandleadng career ended before the Swing era. This amazing record was made in 1924.
