VARIOUS – BRITISH TRADITIONAL JAZZ: AT A TANGENT VOL.6
Artist: VARIOUS ARTISTS
THE CLASSIC STYLE BANDS. Once the revival of Traditional Jazz got underway during the late 1940s and into the 1950s the bands started to split into different camps: those who followed the New Orleans style, those who favoured the Chicago style and those who preferred the Classic style typified by King Oliver, Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Clarence Williams, et al. This CD presents a collection of bands who followed this latter course and provides a varied sample of the different approaches within that style.
