Live and act
Carroll Dickerson played an important role as a band leader in Chicago . First he directed a band that appeared in the " Sunset Cafe " from 1922 to 1924 , with which he went on a longer tour in which Louis Armstrong quickly became known (and took his place). His "Carroll Dickerson Savoyagers" then performed in the Savoy Ballroom , but also in New York in the late 1920s. Musicians such as Louis Armstrong, Buster Bailey , George Mitchell , Earl Hines and Zutty Singleton played in his “Savoy Orchestra” . The musicians of the second edition of Louis Armstrong and His Hot Five from 1928 were musicians of the Dickerson Orchestra. He was also on tour with King Oliver . He briefly led the Mills Blue Rhythm Band before returning to Chicago. Under his own name, he recorded the titles Savoyagers Stomp and Symphony Raps (with his Savoyagers , behind which Armstrong's Savoy Ballroom Five hid) in 1927 .
