Jazz Some Cities and Towns (1977) Jabbo Smith, Fletcher Henderson, Dewey Jackson, others CD
Part of the Folkways Records archives. The original notes are included.
From the "breathy theatricalism" of Chicago theater
jazz to the "youthful enthusiasm" of Birmingham and St. Louis's bands,
the 1920s and 30s were decades of experiment, change, and stylistic
variation in an era when musicians played for their own local audiences.
This compilation travels, making all the local stops from New Orleans
to New York.
