CD Reviews

Includes the complete output of Alphone Trent!!!

"This CD of rare hot territory dance orchestras from the 20's, recorded in Richmond, Virginia are absolutely hot. However there is one main reason for picking up this hard to find Canadian import CD, and that's for the 8 tracks led by Alphonse Trent's legendary territory band, he led the hottest territory band ever to play in Virginia. All of the music is enjoyable on this CD of hot jazz big band rarities from the 20's. You can get a sample of Alphonse Trent's band on "Louder & Funnier." If you like 20's hot jazz, you'll love all of these Richmond Territory Bands."

"I agree with another review that this is an excellent CD. However, one correction: the tracks were recorded in Richmond, INDIANA - not Virginia. Richmond, Indiana was the home of the Starr Piano Company, the makers of Gennett Records which recorded a number of the jazz greats of the period."
