Just to let you know he recorded with Blanche Calloway in 1931, have the titles, Freddy Johnson in France in 1933 (have them on microgroove, CD and believe it or not, 78 rpm, his solos on tiger rag and Harlem madness are incredible). he played with harry cooper in 1934/5 (no recordings), then went to your country in 1935 with Romeu Silva (he may have recorded with Silva in Argentina in 1936 or so, however, I believe he was with Isidoro Benitz in 1936), then later with Dave Washington swing stars. by the late 30's he recorded privately with a bunch of Argentine swing musicians, and probably is on "Sweet Georgia Brown" on a 78 from 1943 with Henri Salvador and others. by 1945 he replaced a Mr Williams in Ahmed Ratip's Cotton Pickers (the best jazz band in Argentina IMHO), recorded with them (2 vocals a brief scat on "St Louis Blues" victor 60-1100 and "Somebody Stole My Gal"). this band had, along with Pittman, Hernan Oliva (a Chilean violinist who played with Oscar Aleman), and Ratip's excellent guitar. Booker then left Argentina around 1949 to farm in Brazil
