The Charleston Era

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
"The Charleston" was composed by Afro-American Harlem stride piano legend James P. Johnson. He actually wrote about a half-dozen "Charlestons" and must have been amused when one of them became the theme song for an entire decade, guaranteeing him royalty payments for years to come. Living Era's Charleston Era compilation focuses almost exclusively upon popular music from the 1920s as performed by famous white entertainers in the U.S.A. and England. With the emphasis on popularity among the record-buying, radio-owning public, this parade of period pieces presents a sizable selection of U.S. dance bands (Paul Whiteman, George Olsen, Nat Shilkret, Isham Jones, Nathan Glantz,...

All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
"The Charleston" was composed by Afro-American Harlem stride piano legend James P. Johnson. He actually wrote about a half-dozen "Charlestons" and must have been amused when one of them became the theme song for an entire decade, guaranteeing him royalty payments for years to come. Living Era's Charleston Era compilation focuses almost exclusively upon popular music from the 1920s as performed by famous white entertainers in the U.S.A. and England. With the emphasis on popularity among the record-buying, radio-owning public, this parade of period pieces presents a sizable selection of U.S. dance bands (Paul Whiteman, George Olsen, Nat Shilkret, Isham Jones, Nathan Glantz, Art Landry, Johnny Hamp, the Coon-Sanders Nighthawks, Ace Brigode, Ben Bernie, Fred Rich, Victor Young, Leonard Joy, and Fred Waring & His Pennsylvanians) and a healthy contingent from Great Britain (Bert Ambrose, Birt Firman, Reg Batten, Carroll Gibbons, and Jack Hylton). Vaudeville is well represented here by Al Jolson, Helen Kane, Nick Lucas, Fred and Adele Astaire (backed by pianist George Gershwin), Paul Whiteman's Rhythm Boys (including a young Bing Crosby), Whispering Jack Smith, and Ukulele Ike. Harlem, the immediate source of the jazz on which all of these white people based their acts, is represented on the last track by Duke Ellington & His Jungle Band, solid as ever if slightly burdened with Dick Robertson, who diligently mouths the words to "Runnin' Wild." A fabulous if sociologically skewed core sample of entertaining music recorded during the years 1924 through 1930.
