With free time on our hands some of us may find time for our hobbies. This CD highlights the early roots and branches of jazz. This two part series brings together some of the greatest performances of early jazz, illustrating that before jazz became a listener’s music of improvised solos it was the rhythm-driven dance music of America. This album shows the incredible variety of the 1920s jazz by bringing together diverse, often obscure masterpieces by legendary small groups and large bands from both city and country. Highlighted is the rich regional flavor of early American jazz. This 2 set volume has 26 songs each. Remastered from original recordings.
