IT TAKES FOREVER TO SET UP, BUT IT’S WORTH IT!

Advertised as Tiny Kahn at his drum set — but it’s really Remo Bell (thanks to my accurate commenters).  But no matter who’s grinning, that drum is surely something to keep the neighbors in line.

JAZZ LIVES readers are free to invent the most appropriate captions (although this is a family blog, often).

  1. “Don’t worry: I only use it for dropping bombs.”

  2. He was “Tiny,” wasn’t he??

  3. This is NOT Tiny Kahn. It’s REMO BELLI (yes, THAT Remo), taken in the 1960s at his small drum head factory. How do I know? Remo gave me a copy of this same photo when I visited his factory in 1963. J. Tobias

  4. As soon as I saw the pic I knew it wasn’t Tiny Kahn. Glad to see Jerry Tobias straighten things out…

  5. Fee Fi Fo Fum, I smell my drum with an Englishman! Be he live or be he dead, I’ll grind his bones to make my bread!

  6. Note to self- don’t mess with the beanstalk giant.

  7. Hello Michael; a great photo indeed. What comes to mind are “His pedal extremity is obnoxious!” or “Take that Baby Dodds!”

  8. Recording engineer as he turns around: “Guys, we’re getting some weird feedback on the low end WHAAAAA?”
