Chimes Blues -- King Oliver's Creole Jazz Band
April 6, 1923 was the first day that the band recorded some 9 tracks. It was in a studio in Richmond, Indiana.The Chimes blues is still played today by many jazz bands. King Oliver cornet, Louis Armstrong cornet, Honore Dutray trombone, Johnny Dodds clarinet, Lil Hardin piano, Bill Johnson banjo and Baby Dodds drums. This is a recording that should be in every serious jazz lover's collection. p.s I recorded Chimes Blues with our Climax Jazz Band in 1996 in Japan with real Chimes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0UT7en...
