Cohan Medley. Great fun. George Jessel. Originally recorded in the early s, there are a number of rolls rarely heard today, and some that were never included on Biograph discs of the s. They were recorded from a different perspective of ragtime piano performance than we now know. From a bevy of requests comes this first in the series of Del Wood reissues, covering her initial recording of Down Yonder and other honky-tonk classics for Tennessee Records.
Most cuts have never been on an album, much less a CD. Biographical information as well, plus an essay on the unlikely hit, Down Yonder. A ragtime treat. The second in the series of Del Wood reissues covers her frequent recordings for Republic Records and some Decca sides up through late There are a few rarities here, many of which were not on LP, and none on CD until now.
A few rarities here, some of which were not on LP, and none on CD until now. The fourth in the series of Del Wood reissues covers her first stereo releases in and , the beginning of her more thematic albums. Includes bonus tracks which were not on LP or CD until now. The fifth in the series of Del Wood reissues continues in with a couple more of her interesting thematic albums. Some extras are included here, most of which were not on LP, much less CD until now. This first volume of Marvin Ash highlights one of the more under-recorded ragtime, stride and jazz pianists of the s to the s.
It includes most of his known recorded piano solo output plus a couple of extraordinary piano roll transcriptions, with different versions of some pieces showing just how versatile this artist was. This second volume represents much of the recorded ensemble work that Marvin Ash either fronted or worked as a sideman.
Even his shorter solos bear significance on the overall attitude of the pieces, as does his tasty backing work. Still a bit damp behind the ears, I went over to Purdue without finishing high school. The war was in full blast and my idea was to establish a place to come back to after military service: and this plan worked out well.
While the war was on, the place was quite austere and Cary Hall men's residence hall was almost completely taken over by the Navy V I was fortunate to get one of the few civilian spaces. Cary Club, the residence hall's extracurricular and social arm, was not functioning because of the war disruption. On my return in , the whole university was quite a different place: an interesting mix of various age veterans and recent high school graduates.
The vets, many of whom had just seen a little more action than a Big Ten football game, were anxious to get their lives going in a serious way, while the high schoolers tried to restrain their remaining adolescent behavior a bit out of respect for the more experienced veterans.
Again I was able to get into Cary Hall, because of my previous residence. But now Cary Club was going and all sorts of new activities were encouraged. Everything from stamp collecting on up or down. But someone had to take the initiative to start each sub-group.
Whoever wished simply posted a bulletin to organize an activity. Jovial jazz fan Charles Chuck Marsh put up such a notice to form a jazz club. The meetings were to take place in the large lounge below the two towers of Carey Hall.
There were no stated limits as to jazz styles, but the word "jazz" then did not have the same generic meaning which it does now. Unlike now, people generally understood that it was not the same thing as "popular music", and was not something that could be heard all over the radio dial.
At meetings, different people would discuss a group or an individual artist, bring records to show, etc. For example, one older member brought his collection of Armstrong Hot 5's which he would own only if an original OK label issue. There was low interest in the jazz club initially, but persons started coming in from other residence facilities and fraternities. One such individual, Carl Ziggy Zaisser, showed up to our delectation.
In the center of this very large lounge where we were meeting was a large Steinway grand piano. Ziggy was a fraternity member, a PE major, and a jazz pianist of professional ability. His father was a piano teacher of high reputation in the New York-New Jersey area.
Ziggy seemed almost as anxious to play for us as we were to listen. His favorite tune was "Cherry", and he had played at Condon's on occasion and was devoted to that style of jazz. It didn't take long for other individuals who played instruments to start appearing to sit-in, although there really were none with his talent.
Besides, pianists don't need anyone else when ability is in short supply. But this was the start of group playing which did provide pleasure for listening members and some satisfaction for those with the temerity to arrive with an instrument.
Ziggy was mostly indulgent so long as he got his solo time. He was never to appear in a public performance with other jazz club instrumentalists and was never a member of the Salty Dogs or its predecessor formed groups.
Mush Dick Mushlitz and I had been at the meetings from the start. He even then played with his characteristic powerful and accurate rhythm on washboard. We became close personal friends and have remained such through considerable time and space. On one university break, Mush not only acquired a banjo, but considerable ability in playing it.
