Jazz/Some Beginnings - 1913-1926

This exploration into the beginnings of jazz brings together the sounds of vaudeville banjoes, dance orchestras, novelty songs, blues singers, and the first recording of New York stride piano. Connected by their fascination with syncopation, the artists on this album all contributed to the early development of this exciting genre.
