GUEST,Will Fly, on the hoof Paul Whiteman-King of Jazz? (185* d) RE: Paul Whiteman-King of Jazz? 04 Jun 09


It's worth having a comparative listen to Whiteman's recordings from the 20s and those of King Oliver's band in his Chicago days. Oliver's band was a true jazz orchestra, with musicians like the young Armstrong on cornet. If you get the chance, check out his recording of "Deep Henderson" - one of the most amazing tracks from early jazz - with it's unusual chords and surging melody. Difference as chalk is from cheese by comparison with Whiteman.
