The Jug Bands

Various Artists FW00RF6 / RF 6

Like the blues, jug band music of the 1920s evolved into separate country and city styles. In both, however, the jug's distinctive sound sets this music apart from the blues or jazz that influenced it. This selection of breakdowns and blues embodies the music's swagger, sensitivity, and musical grandeur.
