Young was one of the finest trombonists to emerge during the
swing era and, even though he was never really a star or a bandleader
himself, he did have one hit with his version of "Margie"

up in Washington, Young was originally a trumpeter, but by the time
he debited in 1928 he had switched to trombone. Extending the range
