Biography

Junius C. Cobb, c.1896, Hot Springs, Arkansas, USA, d. c.1970. After playing piano as a child and with the band led by trumpeter Johnny Dunn, Cobb moved to Chicago, formed his own band and began to expand his range, playing various instruments. He played clarinet, banjo, and, a little later, alto and tenor saxophones. During the 20s he played most of these instruments in various settings including spells with King Oliver and Jimmie Noone. He was briefly in Europe but continued to make Chicago his base where for some years he performed a double act with singer Annabelle Calhoun. In the mid-40s he was mostly to be heard playing piano, often for long engagements at clubs and hotels. In the mid-50s he retired from full-time music but continued to sit in and take occasional gigs during the rest of his life. In addition to all his performing talents, Cobb also wrote a number of songs.
