Various Artists
New Orleans Jazz: The Twenties

Common wisdom holds that the best musicians left New Orleans after the closing of its red light district in 1917. This compilation, however, proves that many talented jazz musicians both black and white remained in the Big Easy. Of particular interest on this collection are the rare and "exultantly vigorous and creative" recordings of New Orleans black musicians.
