Collector’s Corner (Free MP3s) • Some More January Jazz Additions — King Oliver, Clarence Williams, Chicago Rhythm Kings

.

January’s been been a very good month indeed, record-wise. Much more fun collecting them than writing about them! So, here are a few more new additions to the jazz collection, for your listening pleasure.

You can find approximate personnel listings in our free download of Brian Rust’s Jazz Records, 6th Edition. They’re not from the original recording files (which rarely list full personnel before the late 1930s), and Brian didn’t cite his sources, but he’s probably pretty much on the mark for these sides.
