King Oliver & his Orchestra 1

SKU: DGF64

The highly acclaimed first of two volumes of the mighty King Oliver & His Orchestra's complete recorded output for Victor Records  made in 1929. Twenty two beautifully remastered tracks featuring hot trumpets and band action from the king himself together with  Louis Metcalf, Charlie Holmes, Luis Russell and the best that Jazz had to offer during the depression year. Remastering by John RT Davis & Ted Kendall with excellent notes by the late John Capes.

As first amongst equals Joseph "Joe King" Oliver (1885-1938) was outstanding in the first generation of New Orleans Jazz greats. The bands he put together are rightly considered to be among the greatest ever heard on record.
