Jazz Some Beginnings 1913-26 (1977) Bert Williams, Fred Van Eps, Mamie Smith, others CD
Part of the Folkways Records archives. The original notes are included.
This exploration into the beginnings of jazz brings
together the sounds of vaudeville banjoes, dance orchestras, novelty
songs, blues singers, and the first recording of New York stride piano.
Connected by their fascination with syncopation, the artists on this
album all contributed to the early development of this exciting genre.
