THE ORIGINAL DIXIELAND JAZZBAND - Tiger Rag - Their 25 Finest 1917 - 1923

THE ORIGINAL DIXIELAND JAZZBAND - Tiger Rag - Their 25 Finest 1917 - 1923
CD / Product Number: RTR4296

The Original Dixieland Jazz Band was the first band to wax the sound of jazz, thereby providing a blueprint which others sought to emulate. Although all of the recordings on this centenary tribute were cut in the acoustic era, the technology involved was sufficiently advanced to capture their sound, both individually and collectively. Moreover, many of the numbers which they chose to record, some of which they’d composed themselves, became jazz standards. The band had a considerable influence, not only in America, but also in England, which they visited in 1919/20. Taken as a whole this compilation projects a vivid account of the raw energy that captured listeners a century ago. The liner note comprises a detailed discography and a historical and musical appreciation by trumpeter Digby Fairweather.
