Jazz from the Tradition

Recorded Jazz from the beginning (1917) to roughly 1947, which marks the unofficial end of the Big Band Era. This template is based on the long running NPR program, Jazz Revisited. Of course, if an artist (Armstrong, Basie, Ellington, etc) lived and recorded into more recent times, that music is also playable.

Artists played

Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, Woody Herman, Jimmie Lunceford, Bix Beiderbecke, Eddie Condon (and the "usual suspects"), Billie Holiday, Chick Webb, Gene Krupa.
