Discography.

This collection begins with a recording made in the very first months in the history of Jazz recording! For those of you who believe that there is little jazz or blues on the Edison label this CD will, hopefully, come as a pleasant surprise. Thomas Edison’s dislike of Jazz and Dance Music was well known. He was quoted as saying: “I always play Jazz records backwards, they sound better that way.” Despite his personal views, recordings by some of the finest Jazz Bands and Dance Orchestras and Blues artists of the period were issued on his label, many recording exclusively for the Edison label.
