Jazz Oracle BDW 8033
New Orleans Jazz Band
The complete instrumental recordings by this obscure band, recorded in 1924 and 1925. These sides are of special interest as they include the first recordings by two important jazzmen - Sidney Arodin, who went on to participate in several classic sessions during the 1920s and 1930s, and Brad Gowans, who was a fixture of the New York Dixieland scene during the 1940s.
