JAZZ HISTORY

VA - That Devilin' Tune (A Jazz History) Vol. 01 - Vol. 04 1895 - 1951 [2006] (36 x CD's)

The musical landscape that gave birth to jazz during the late 19th and early 20th centuries has seldom been accurately depicted, and is still only partially understood even by the few who try to interact with it on more than a superficial level. While artificially imposed genre delineations have long been used to organize and market audio recordings, they often make a mockery of the diverse culture within which the music evolved. When in 2006 the West Hill Radio Archives brought out the first of four sizable box sets of nine CDs, each containing a total of 851 examples dating from 1895-1951, the producers of the series achieved an unprecedented degree of panoramic comprehensiveness. 

This 36-disc anthology bearing the antiquated title "That Devilin' Tune" covers a timeline extending from 1895 to 1951. During those years, sound recording technology and the increased rapidity of travel and communications caused jazz to evolve more quickly than anyone ever dreamt that it could or would."That Devilin' Tune"emphasizes the fact that jazz and anything it touches has always existed as one continuous braid of traditions. Furthermore, it is that healthy tendency to absorb and be absorbed by other genres that makes jazz so exciting, challenging, rewarding, and predictably unpredictable. That's what this gigantic anthology of great music is all about. Each of the four volumes in the massive anthology of historic music issued as That Devilin' Tune is packed with great music pulled from an unusually wide range of styles and musical categories.This genre-transcending approach is highly rewarding.
