Dixieland Jazz Favourites (CD)
A celebration of the perpetually popular musical genre known as Dixieland Jazz. On two discs across 41 tracks Reader's Digest presents a definitive collection of this much loved musical styling. From it's birthplace as America's first truly popular music in New Orleans through to its chart topping early sixties triumph in the UK this collection has it all. Familiar refrains such as Alexander's Ragtime Band, When The Saints Go Marching In and Beale Street Blues. Artists of the stature of Chris Barber, Sydney Bechet and Kenny Ball. A marvellously compiled journey through the history of one of the twentieth century's greatest genres. One of the wonder aspects of jazz is that it just doesn't date. These tunes have been in the repertoire for over ninety years in some cases and show no signs of going out of fashion yet for jazzers!
