Jazz Through the Looking Glass: The Hot Jazz Age

Gordon Au's Grand Street Stompers celebrate the first commercially released jazz recording in this homage to the Original Dixieland Jazz Band’s J. Russel Robinson. Robinson is known for his blues-influenced playing style and his contributions to jazz and American popular music. The exceptional period jazz vocalist Molly Ryan adds to the authentic vintage sound for a night of rhythm in your feet.
