”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 89 – 8 mars 2002

Troy Floyd hade ett band i Texas på 20-talet som hade turen (i synnerhet tur för oss sentida musikälskare) att bli inspelat. I sättningen finns New Orleans-trumpetaren Don Albert. På en helt annan plats i en helt annan tid fick ett av de viktigaste av de band som lyckades åstadkomma den tidiga jazzens återkomst i Europa gott om inspelningsmöjligheter. Humphrey Lyttelton’s band fick chans att gå in i inspelningsstudion en gång i månaden under ett helt decennium. Vi lyssnar på det och vi hör också berättas hur Jelly Roll Morton genom sin blotta uppenbarelse skrämde livet av pianisten Mary Lou Williams – och mycket annat i dagens program. Missa inte!
