Vol. 3

A fun, hot jazz band from the 1920s who never became well-known but recorded prolifically, the Original Indiana Five had stable personnel, an appealing repertoire of jazz and pop tunes, and a freewheeling style influenced by the Original Memphis Five. There were no virtuoso soloists in the group, but there was a strong team spirit that resulted in many uncrowded and lively ensembles, along with purposeful solos. The third volume in this complete series (which skips over the numbers already reissued on a CD from the Frog label) has 24 enjoyable selections, most of which (other than "Hard to Get Gertie," "Jackass Blues," and "Heebies Jeebies") are obscure. In addition to the numbers originally released as by the Original Indiana Five, a session apiece by the Black Diamond Serenaders and Tommy Morton's Grangers (which are very similar groups) are included. This disc and the previous ones are easily recommended to fans of 1920s jazz.
