While the rise of jazz during the 1920s is most often associated with the raw, extroverted "hot jazz" style of New Orleans, there were in fact a number of markedly different and ultimately highly influential variations on the new art form as it spread and developed in other regions and music communities. Jesse Cloninger and the Jazz Kings contemplate several of these variations, with particular focus on the differences between the New Orleans style as represented by Louis Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton and the cooler, more relaxed and lyrical style associated with the work of Frankie Trumbauer, Bix Beiderbecke and Jimmy Dorsey. Look for such classics as "Basin Street Blues", "Muskrat Ramble", "I'll Be Glad When Your Dead", "Clarinet Marmalade", "Singin' The Blues", "Doing The Uptown Lowdown" and more!
