Jazz/Some Cities and Towns

From the "breathy theatricalism" of Chicago theater jazz to the "youthful enthusiasm" of Birmingham and St. Louis's bands, the 1920s and 30s were decades of experiment, change, and stylistic variation in an era when musicians played for their own local audiences. This compilation travels, making all the local stops from New Orleans to New York.
