Here's a name for collectors of obscure R&B bass players, often a key to a musical treasure chest. William Moore was a bassist from the Jackson, MS, area who played on a few sessions for the Trumpet label. Lillian McMurry, one of the few female owners of a blues label, made an excellent subject for author Marc Ryan, but there may not be much about Moore in his Diamonds on Farish Street, a tome trumpeting Trumpet. The music he made is Moore than just audible on the Trumpet compilation entitled Shout, Brother, Shout!
