All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Great Britain's JSP imprint is well-known for its often-exhaustive boxed sets, for single as well as multiple artists, and this one, which covers the Gennett imprint form Indiana in the 1920s, is no exception. While this box doesn't include the complete catalog of the legendary (if little known by all but early jazz collectors) imprint, it does offer a massive sampling of the 1,250 records they released between the label's founding in 1922 right on through to its final releases in 1930. Some of the artists represented here include King Oliver, the Friars Society Orchestra, Watson's Pullman Porters, Josephine Beatty, Bailey's Lucky Seven, the Bucktown Five, Ladd's Black Aces,...

Some of the artists represented here include King Oliver, the Friars Society Orchestra, Watson's Pullman Porters, Josephine Beatty, Bailey's Lucky Seven, the Bucktown Five, Ladd's Black Aces, Alberta Hunter, Jelly Roll Morton, and the Red Onion Jazz Babies, to name a few. This set is basically a must for fans of early jazz. It marks the very first time many of the selections have appeared on CD, and is the first such compilation of the label in a digital format. JSP releases are all remastered, and fully annotated with discographical information, and this one is no exception. There is a fine historical liner essay by Pat Harrison, as well.

    Jazz as it was in the '20s and 30s

    If you like early jazz as it was before the big names came along, you'll love this CD collection. The Gennett recordings from 1923-1931 include bands and blues singers you might not have heard of. It is rough around the edges but fun, and the recording quality is surprisingly good in view of the age of the original material. I'd say: buy!
