Program notes

There is one line at the beginning of this concert that sums up the music industry for early jazz and boogie woogie musicians. It is said by leader Sammy Price when he introduces a song: “Usually you don’t get any credit for these things until you’ve passed on to the great beyond.” Indeed, many of the tracks played by Price and his All Stars came from the dim history of 19th Century American music, whereby jazz songs were passed down as an oral tradition and their original composers’ names got lost in the dust.
