Jazz in California 1923-1930 (1997) Retail CD
West Coast Jazz
New York Blues
This CD features jazz as played by local Los Angeles bands from the 1923-1930 period. Featured are Sonny Clay's Plantation Orchestra, Vic Meyers, Henry Halstead, Reb Spikes' Majors & Minors, and Tom Gerunovich's Roof Garden Orchestra, five fine no-name ensembles. The only sideman to have much of a career in later years was trumpeter William Blakeney. However, the main reason to acquire this CD is for the dozen selections (plus one alternate take) from Paul Howard's Quality Serenaders, the complete output of the hard-swinging band. Best-known among Howard's sidemen are trombonist Lawrence Brownmore… and Lionel Hampton (playing drums, taking four vocals, and having one appearance on piano). Recommended for vintage jazz collectors.
