ABOUT THE MUSIC
The focus of our music is from the first thirty five years of the 20th century. The range is from classic ragtime to traditional jazz and the early swing era. This was a time of innovation and creativity. The composers and artists who contributed so much include: Scott Joplin, James Scott, Jelly Roll Morton, The Original Dixieland Jazz Band, King Oliver, Louis Armstrong, Irving Berlin, Bix Beiderbecke, Hoagy Carmichael, and so many others. Fortunately the recording industry grew up with them and the recorded history lives on.
