Biography
Fats Pichon was considered a valuable pianist, arranger and singer by New Orleans jazz musicians. He moved to New York as a teenager and soon studied at the New England Conservatory in Boston. Pichon toured Mexico with the Eleven Aces and then spent 1926-28 back in New Orleans, leading his own band and working with Sidney Desvigne. He went back to New York in late 1928, sang on a Luis Russell record and freelanced. Pichon worked in Texas with the Dusky Stevedores (1929), played with Elmer Snowden and Fess Williams (1931) in NY and then he moved back to New Orleans, where he worked with Desvigne, A.J. Piron and his own group. Pichon gigged a bit in Memphis (1935), toured with Mamie Smith and was often featured as a soloist and singer during the 1940s and '50s in New Orleans and New York. He had to cut back on his activities in the '60s due to failing eyesight. Pichon led a session in 1929 (two songs in a trio with Red Allen and Teddy Bunn), two unaccompanied solos in 1946, four cuts in 1947 with a trio (for DeLuxe) and a full-length Decca trio album in 1956. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi
