”That jazz” is referring to a miracle in music that happened in the beginning of 1900s when people from a big variation of ethnical and cultural background inspired each other to play in a new fashion. Luckily all this coincided with the development of new inventions like the phonograph recordings, photography and film so that it became in part documented and still can be enjoyed today. In my early teens I happened to be exposed to ”that jazz” and it struck a string deep within me that has kept vibrating ever since.

Radio Swingtime 96 – 31 maj 2002

Vi börjar med att lyssna på några kända New Orleans-klarinettister Albert Nicholas och Johhny Dodds i mindre respektive större sättning och sedan deras gemensamma lärare Lorenzo Tio Jr. Därefter glider vi så småningom över i ett annorlunda upplägg; Eftersom fotbolls VM stod för dörren (2002 i Japan och Sydkorea) blev det intressant att kasta en blick på förhandstipsen och samtidigt låta de konkurrerande nationerna representeras av utövare av tidig jazz. Alltså Europeiska och Sydamerikanska inspelningar för ovanlighetens skull. Missa inte detta!
