”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 88 – 2 mars 2002

Hur lät det när Fletcher Hendersons orkester pre-Armstrong hade hyss för sig med stock arrangements? Hur gick det för The Wolverines på Cinderella Ballroom i New York 1924? Hur lär det när bröderna Cobb spelade med en bassaxofonist? Kunde en New Orleans-trumpetare som Punch Miller disciplinera sig och spela arrangerad musik i Chicago, och hur lät Isham Jones’ version av schlagern “Sweet Jennie Lee”? Stilla din nyfikenhet och njut därtill i dagens program!
