Antique Phonograph Music Program 06/02/2009 (2009)



  • Big band 
  • Jazz 
  • Oldies 
  • Spoken word 
  • Dixieland

Comment: these 35 minutes introduce you to the beginning of the 20th century music to spend time with such artists as orchestras as Black Face Eddie Ross, Cal Stewart, Bill Murray, Arhtur Collins and Byron G. Harlan, Clyde Doerr and His Orchestra, Gene Green, Golden and Heins, James I. Lent, Joe Hayman, Mamie Smith and her Jazz Hounds, M.J. OConnell, Six Brown Brothers, and The Columbia Orchestra. It is entertaining, lively and funny where jazz/and dixieland and big band-based compositions and orchestrations are variegated with more spoken word numbers. These tracks come from a time span between 1901 to 1922. Some of them are truly funny in their vehement oratory – for instance, listen to Joe Hayman`s Cohen at the Real Estate Office. It is a welcome interlude to enjoy such sort of music while you are intended to rest from contemporary sophisticated (experimental) music. Furthermore, today it is popular to take samples from historic and oldie music to either compose something truly offbeat or create a haunting atmosphere something like being created by Leyland Kirby aka The Caretaker. It is just a little notch in the series of Antique Phonograph Music Program by WFMU at Free Music Archive.
