  1. Yes, very true and this is good info for listeners interested in Jazz for sure. My point was that of the young old-time music enthusiasts I come across out there I don’t see many who are interested in jazz and even less in dance bands. This is too bad. I will try to do more shows that focus on this music and hopefully help introduce it to a younger generation.

  2. It’s not true that there are no reissues of old jazz and hot dance available to young listeners. Before there was Chris KIng, the late John R.T. Davies was widely considered as the best sound restorer of this kind of music. The labels to look out for are Frog (frog-records.co.uk), Jazz Oracle (jazzoracle.com), Retrieval (challenge.nl), Timeless (timelessjazz.com) and Rivermont (rivermontrecords.com). The two Red Nichols sides are on a complete set from Jazz Oracle, a Canadian label, which also has a reissue of the Curtis Mosbys. A take of the Blanche Calloway number is on a Retrieval sampler. Timeless has the complete Tiny Parham and also the Paul Howard on on West Coast compilation. The JSP label has two boxes of Cab Calloway by Davies and the complete Fats Waller on commercial recordings, restored by John R.T. Davies’ pupil Ted Kendall – JSP’s quality depends on which engineers they used. Rivermont has mainly white hot dance bands and piano novelty/ragtime recordings, including contemporary recordings. People interested in jazz violin are advised to consult Anthony Barnett’s website (abar.net) – he has his own label devoted to well-engineered reissues of various violin players. Finally, there is the HEP label (hepjazz.com) which devoted mainly to swing era material, but starts with the Tennessee Tooters, early Casa Loma and Mills’ Blue Rhythm Band, which can be very hot at times.
