CD Reviews

A fun set
Mr. Jazz | 09/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"AMG EXPERT REVIEW: Although the main jazz centers during the '20s were New York and Chicago, due to the traveling bands (which inspired younger players) and the growing availability of records, jazz quickly spread everywhere. Occasionally labels would take their recording facilities on location to capture local talent and this 1998 CD has some of the most interesting (and rarest) of all the territory bands. Included is the complete output (usually one or two selections) of George Warmack's Orchestra (from Buffalo, NY), Roy Johnson's Happy Pals (of Richmond, VA), the Foor-Robinson Carolina Club Orchestra (Ashville, NC), the Bubbling Over Five (also Richmond, VA), Harold Ortili's Ohio State Collegians (Cleveland, OH), George Osborne (St. Paul, MN), the U.S. Naval Academy Ten (Annapolis, MD) and a test pressing by Frank Ward's Orchestra (from Framingham, MA) that features the debut of trumpeter Sylvester Ahola. In addition, the best recordings by the Blue Ribbon Syncopators (from Buffalo, NY), Charlie Davis' Orchestra (Indianapolis, IN), Emerson Gill's Orchestra (Cleveland, OH), Maynard Baird (Knoxville, TN), Ernest Loomis (Butte, MT!), Jackie Souders (Seattle, WA) and Arnold Frank's Roger's Café Orchestra (Minneapolis, MN) are here. Nearly all of the 24 selections are quite worthwhile and this CD is highly recommended to vintage jazz collectors (who will probably not already own most of this material) and historians, both for its historic and musical value. A fun set. - Scott Yanow"
Rare and essential hot jazz...
Mr. Jazz | 09/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There were two types of popular music in the 20's, sweet music(Guy Lombardo) and hot music(Coons-Sanders Original Nighthawks Orchestra). The music on this european Timeless CD remastered from 78 rmp's by the brilliant John R.T. Davies, is HOT dance music, however if you're a jazz collector like me and you think you have it all, think again, this CD has a lot of rarities by unknown yet jazzy and hot dance bands. This is a fun and enjoyable set. Collectors of hot jazz, and tradional jazz will love this. Highly recommended"
A spectacular CD of rare and obscure 20's "HOT" dance bands
The Jazz Man | 09/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you like hot dance music of the roaring 20's or are just a collector of vintage jazz this CD is essential for you. Even collectors of classic and vintage jazz won't have the rare recordings compiled on this spectacular CD. You may not recognize any of the bandmembers or bands but they are all hot, and jazz worthy. Essential hot 20's jazz."
