old recordings

Corey Gemme, a native of Los Angeles, picked up the trumpet at about age 10 being inspired first by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, then  by listening to a Big Band radio station his parents used to play in the house and in the car. Corey was particularly influenced by Louis Armstrong, Red Nichols, Harry James, Charlie Shavers, Bunny Berrigan, and Bix Beiderbecke among others.


He studied music at Pasadena City College and California State University Los Angeles. Corey has performed with many groups including the Hot Frogs, Conrad Janis and the Beverly Hills Unlisted Jazz Band, Janet Carroll, Johnny Crawford, Dean Mora's Modern Rhythmists, The Black Swan Jazz Band, Jim Cullum's Happy Jazz Band, The Reynolds Brothers', The High Sierra Jazz Band, The Titan Hot Seven, and Banu Gibson.


Corey leads three of his own bands.  His his  DIXIEBOP QUARTET and THE WABASH WAILERS, and in 2012 started Rolling Figs Jazz Orchestra, which performs all original material written and arranged by Corey.

He currently performs around the Los Angeles area with other bands including Janet Klein, Dutch Newman And His Musical Melodians, Suzy Williams And her Solid Senders, Ginger And The Hoosier Daddies, The Mike Henebry Big Band, The Jonathan Stout Big Band, and The South Burgundy Street Jazz Band.


He has traveled throughout the US, Canada, Australia, Japan and China, England, Sweden, Europe, and appeared as a featured guest at the Sancy Snow Festival in France, and was regularly featured at the Sweet and Hot Jazz festival in Los Angeles for its last 8 years.

In the small bit of spare time he has, he can be found making ceramics, scuba diving Hang Gliding, and doing scenic photography which results in an annual scenic photo calendar of his travels.

Corey’s traditional Dixieland band playing all your Dixieland favorites. The Wabash Wailers ranges between four and seven pieces.

Corey’s mostly swing with an occasional bee-bop flavor quartet playing early Jazz and Swing classics and originals. With Piano, Cornet, Clarinet, Trombone, Vibraphone and Drums.

Corey's 9 piece 1930's-ish sounding ensemble performing all original songs composed and arranged by Corey.  The Rolling Figs contain within it, Corey’s Dixiebop Quartet
