"Don't expect top quality sound - this is a 1920's recording - similar to cranking up the victrola! When friends come over they ultimately ask where do you find such cool music."
A good example of pre-Crosby & Armstrong jazz singing...

"Before Bing & Louis came along in 1926 this was what most singers were like, this is a good example of better pop singing of the era. For some good pre-armstrong true jazz singing try Annette Hanshaw, but this is good vaudevillian style singing, with fine sound quality. Aslo of course try Louis Armstrong who practicly invented jazz singing as an art, and don't forget the under-rated Bing Crosby who also sang jazz in the 20's. This Sophie Tucker CD in good, but try some of the other artists mentioned too."
