I changed the wording on two points: 1) Ory indeed said he moved from New Orleans to California "for [his] health" in some interviews, but given the details when he discussed that time in more details it seems likely he was using the slang meaning of the phrase (which folks who watch old gangster movies will probably be familiar with). Unless we can discuss details, I think it's better to leave it at the simple statement of when and where he moved. 2)Someone may have finally established an exact date on Ory's Nordskog Records recordings, but if so I havn't seen it yet. All the sides may have been made on a single day, or maybe not. Thus I'm inclinded to leave it at he recorded "about" '21 or '22. -- Infrogmation 01:42, 12 May 2006 (UTC)
At times, Kid Ory was in New Orleans in the late 1960s and early 1970s. I have a poster, buried in storage, from a performance on a showboat from that time. He also returned for filming of a documentary on his life. 83d40m 00:08, 12 November 2006 (UTC)
Moved comment from article
Although my Father did retire in 1966 from Los Angeles to Honolulu.He continued to play special occasions & the last was in 1971 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, George Wein in asking my dad to come broke a separation from New Orleans & the public Ory that had not been since 1919. Our Family had a great reunion & fans got to see& hear Kid Ory one last time in New Orleans.

Tone, References and Chronology
I have no dispute with essential facts in this article, but the chronological arrangement of the events noted is way out of whack. The tone, while not too bad, is still a tad subjective for a Wikipedia article and it does need more citations.
The best and latest research on Nordskog places the Ory Sunshine session in the late summer or fall of 1922, and this is partly supported by known release dates for other Nordskog records. They are certainly not later than 1923; to produce his disc supply, Nordskog shipped his master records off to Arto in Canada. Arto had a fire in 1923 which spelled the end of Nordskog. The Ory Sunshine discs were originally released on Nordskog as by "Spikes' Seven Pods of Pepper" i.e. as though they were the work of the Spikes Bros. However, the Sunshine labels were pasted over copies of the Nordskog discs.Pinikadia 21:01, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
