ERIE CELEBRATES 100 YEARS OF RECORDED JAZZ
Concert Season for 2017

On March 6th, 1917, the Victor Talking Mchine Co. released a recording by the Original Dixieland Jazz Band of "Original Dixieland Jass Band One Step' and 'Livery Stable Blues'.   On May 31 of that same year, another disc by ODJB was released by Columbia Gramaphone Co.  This disc included "Darktown Strutters Ball" and "Indiana."  These sides became hits and gave Americans across the country their first taste of America's only original art form, jazz.  "Erie Celebrates 100 Years of Recorded Jazz" is a year-long celebration presented by JazzErie and the sponsors below..
