Hot Stuff: Black Chicago Bands 1922-1929

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Cub Koda
A 24-track collection of impossibly rare jazz sides from the first Chicago-based African-American bands to record. Kicking off with the 1922 test pressing by the mysterious Sunset Band, the collection brings together rarities from Elgar's Creole Orchestra, Fess Williams & His Joy Boys, Carroll Dickerson's Savoy Orchestra, Walter Barnes & His Creolians, and Oliver Cobb & His Rhythm Kings. The transfers are dodgy in spots, but considering the age and rarity of these sides, it can be overlooked. A fascinating collection of music that deserves a much wider hearing.
