Producer Rich Conaty did an excellent job for this CD of gathering together mostly obscure recordings from the 1924-1937 period, finishing Big Broadcast: Jazz and Popular Music of the 1920s and 1930s with two unissued performances. Along the way is an excellent mixture of white and black bands, instrumentals and vocals. Whether it is the early scat vocal of Don Redman with Fletcher Henderson ("My Papa Doesn't Two-Time No Time"), some period but worthy singing from Scrappy Lambert, Rube Bloom's complex but catchy "Soliloquy," an alternate take of Cab Calloway's "Is That Religion," the great Marion Harris singing "Blue Again" or Garland Wilson's heated piano solo version of "Just One of Those Things," there is much to enjoy and savor throughout this strong sampler. Even veteran collectors will find some of these selections to be very rare, and Rich Conaty's informative liner notes are an added plus. This very enjoyable release is highly recommended for '20s collectors.
