”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.

Storyville’s Sensation

Hot House Jazzmen

I januari 1994 spelade vi in vår första CD med Hot House Jazzmen. En av låtarna på den hade jag hämtat från en av mina 78or med ett Stockholmsband från 50-talet. Melodin som heter Storyville’s Sensation var komponerad av trumpetaren Rolf Ekelund och vad jag vet har ingen annan än vi tagit upp den. En entusiastisk Stockholms-resecent spekulerade till och med i att ”det var så här Rolf ville att hans band skulle låta”.

Framsidan på CD:n har en historia som berättas i kommande inlägg.

Hot House Jazzmen spelar Storyville’s Sensation, Inspelad i Malmö den 15 januari 1994.
