Ok another chance to play music for the holidays. I have fallen DEEPLY in love with old Dixieland, and old New Orleans Jazz music in the past year. Musicians most folks are not aware of...Sure we have heard of Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington ..but I am going to play music from Armstrong's mentor and one of the BIGGEST influences in jazz, Joe "King" Oliver. His Creole Jazz band is very old stuff but fantastic! This show will be a little history of the music and musicians on this CD. As most folks reflect on their year, I am choosing to learn more about the music I have been exposed to in the last year. But don't worry, show will be MOSTLY MUSIC. Only 30 minutes, no more than 5 minutes of talking. Tell your Jazz friends or young musicians to listen. Great slide show of folks playing on this song.
