Companion to our recent "Chicago - White Small Bands" release, this volume features recordings made in Chicago by acts from across America in the early years of Jazz development.

Tracks include; "Dusty Bottom Blues" - Richard M. Jones And His JazzWizards, "Bull Fiddle Blues" - Johnny Dodds Washboard Band, "Parkway Stomp"- Albert Wynn And His Gutbucket Five, "Weather Bird - Louis Armstrong and Earl Hines "Funny Fumble"- Harry Dial's Blusicians.
