Product Description & Reviews

Myth has it that jazz was born in New Orleans and spread from there to the rest of the world. However often this tale is challenged, there's something about the Crescent City that makes it the most musically unique and its jazzmen, from the legendary Buddy Bolden to Wynton Marsalis, among the most influential. And it was a band from New Orleans that brought jazz to the world when the Original Dixieland Jazz Band stormed New York in 1917, and Europe the following year. The ODJB's members were white. New Orleans had a tolerant reputation but there were stress fractures. Even within black society there was a social division between the Creoles, with their aspirations toward gentility, and the black working class. In the realms of music these differences were so blurred as to allow some leveling between such groups. But music was not without its perils as Jelly Roll Morton discovered when his 'superior' Creole family kicked him out after becoming aware that he was playing piano in a Storyville whorehouse. That was the least of it. Jelly supplemented his piano playing with pool-sharking and pimping and by working up various vaudeville acts, which found him displaying his talents on the West Coast prior to WW1. Not too far behind him came 'Kid' Ory, another Creole, who moved west for health reasons in 1919. Even Joe 'King' Oliver, who had left New Orleans for Chicago around the same time, was playing on the Coast in 1922, before moving back to Chicago and introducing Louis Armstrong to the world. These men are well documented elsewhere in the JSP catalogue so here we concern ourselves with their contemporaries. You'll find decent servings of Papa Celestin's Tuxedo Orchestra, Louis Dumaine's Jazzola Eight, The Red Onion Jazz Babies, Cookie's Gingersnaps, and the Chicago Footwarmers featuring the famous like Johnny Dodds, Kid Ory and Freddie Keppard. Also here are the less well-known - like Mutt Carey Doc Cooke and Armand Piron, who prove they're no less talented.
