KANSAS CITY BREAKDOWN - BENNIE MOTEN 'S KANSAS CITY ORCHESTRA Volume 2

KANSAS CITY BREAKDOWN - BENNIE MOTEN 'S KANSAS CITY ORCHESTRA Volume 2
£12.99
CD / Product Number: DGF30

This is volume 2 of the Frog recordings of Bernie Moten's Kansas City Orchestra. Often called 'the heart of America', Kansas City lies in the centre of the USA where the Kansas and Missouri rivers meet. This volume contains all extant recordings of the band to 17th July 1929. They have a lot to recommend them - a distinctive band style, original tunes played with verve and at their best, a superb swinging ensemble. Not to be missed.
The band features Bernie Moten with Ed Lewis, Booker Washington, Thamon Hayes, Harlan Leonard, Woody Walder, Ira Buster Moten, Leroy Berry, Vernon Page and Willie McWashington.
Volume 1 is on DGF29
