Jazz, Vol. 7: New York (1922-1934)

New Yorkers were drawn to the dancehalls and grooved to the likes of Jack Teagarden and His Orchestra, The Kentucky Club Orchestra, the Fletcher Henderson Orchestra, the Clarence Williams Blue Five and the Lang-Venuti All Star Orchestra. In New York jazz, the piano became a melodic and harmonic focal point rather than mainly a percussion instrument; Fats Waller and James P. Johnson demonstrate this new style.
