CD / Product Number: DGF09

By 1929 the end of Chicago's Jazz Age was already in sight. The closure of many small black and tan cabarets by the Federal Authorities for violation of teh Volstead Act prohibiting the sale of Alcholic liquir, the advent of the 'talking picture' and the increasing effect of network radio all combined to dimish the work available for musicians. Then the Great Depression was the final blow. The recordings preswented on this CD are representative of the music played in the City before the changes in both social and economic conditions led to the beginning of the swing era.
The bands here are the LEVEE SERENADERS featuring Jelly Roll Morton - JASPER TAYLORS 'ORIGINAL WASHBOARD BAND' - LIL HARDWAY'S ORCHESTRA - SAMMY STEWART AND HIS ORCHESTRA - WYNN'S CREOLE JAZZ BAND featuring Punch Miller - ALBERT WYNN AND HIS GUT BUCKET FIVE - JIMMY WADE AND HIS DIXIELANDERS - JIMMY BERTRAND'S WASHBOARD BAND featuring Punch Miller - BEALE STREET WASHBOARD BAND featuring Johnny Dodds - FRANKIE FRANKO AND HIS LOUISIANIANS.
