Jazz, Vol. 5: Chicago 1

This compilation chronicles the arrival of New Orleans jazz in Chicago during the early 1920s and demonstrates how that body of music was integrated into the Chicago music scene. The album features renowned dance bands—Louis Armstrong and His Hot Five, Jelly Roll Morton’s Red Hot Peppers, two King Oliver and Johnny Dodds’s bands—with squealing trumpets and wailing clarinets.
