miff mole

Irving Milfred Mole (March 11, 1898 – April 29, 1961) known professionally as Miff Mole, was an American jazz trombonist and band leader. He is generally considered one of the greatest jazz trombonists and credited with creating “the first distinctive and influential solo jazz trombone style.”

His major recordings included “Slippin’ Around”, “Red Hot Mama” in 1924 with Sophie Tucker on vocals, “Miff’s Blues”, and “There’ll Come a Time (Wait and See)”, which is on the film soundtrack to the 2008 movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
