Original Dixieland Jazz Band;Earl Fuller; Original New Orleans Jazz Band;Ross Gorman;Louisiana Five;Jimmy Durante; Whiteway Jazz Band What:The ODJB made the first jazz recordings and caused a sensation with this revolutionary new music.Inevitably,many wouldbe imitators flocked into the recording studio's attempting to emulate their success, with very mixed musical results. This CD provides a survey of those results which is of great historical interest.
Retrieval already has available RTR 79033, which contains the ODJB's rare London recordings and the very hard to find Okeh's. Now it brings you the rarest of all,the Aeolian-Vocalions and adds to them such important sides as the Jimmy Durante Jazz Band titles and many more,most of which have never before been on CD. This is a must-buy for all serious jazz collectors and it is fun to listen to too.

"...this music is epoch making... Thanks for making it available."
