According to Jim Leigh in Heaven on the Side: "Twenty
years after having been a pioneer revivalist in the Bay Area, with
Watters, Turk, and Co., the trumpeter Byron Berry had his turn on
trumpet with Ory in 1962-63, and when he was not at On the Levee he was hanging out across the street at The Pier."
