Biography
Ernest Loring "Red" Nichols (May 8, 1905-June 28, 1965) a United States jazz cornet player, became one of the busiest phonograph session musicians of his era, making hundreds of recording sessions of jazz and hot dance band music. In the 1920s alone he appeared on over 4,000 recordings, working with almost every important musician of his time. Though his style of playing was influenced by Bix Beiderbecke, Nichols, an excellent sight reader, was a considered a better, more polished musician. Born in Utah, Nichols studied music under his father, a college music professor, and mastered a variety of instruments.
