Red Nichols And His Five Pennies
Ernest Loring "Red" Nichols (May 8, 1905 – June 28, 1965) was a United States jazz cornettist. Nichols was born in Ogden, Utah, the son of a music teacher. By the age of 12 he was playing cornet with his father's brass band. He decided to take up the new style of music called jazz after hearing the phonograph records of the Original Dixieland Jass Band.
