Wow! What a great example of early jazz, with improvisation built around the melody, rather than the chord structure. I love the way it starts in minor and transitions into major. Sounds like a scaled-down group, with trumpet (or cornet, I can never tell) and clarinet plus rhythm section. I miss a trombone in the ensembled, but probably nobody else will.

A real gem. Thanks for finding it.

Glad you like it! You may want to check out their other recordings, which are excellent. Their first recording for Okeh does have a can listen to the first side here (though the other side's better, IMO).

And that is indeed a cornet, played by Albert Brunies.

Now there are an early jazz apple and orange. I'll say that trombonicator does little to raise the level of musical discourse.

While listening, I saw this in the right side scroll menu.

Passed along without comment.
