Papa Bue's Viking Jazzband: Rags And Marches


Publisher: Storyville Records
Artist: Papa Bue
Format: Audio / Video | Recorded Performance
Rags And Marches is a collaboration between two of the top European traditional jazz bands from the 1950s: Papa Bue’s Viking Jazzband from Denmark and Graham Stewart And His New Orleans Band from England. Moreover, the CD is a very unusual compilation, since all the tunes are either rags (ragtime) or marches – two musical genres, essential to traditional jazz, which not only pre-date the advent of jazz music, but also have their roots in the 19th century European musical tradition. The twenty tunes here were all recorded in Copenhagen between 1958 and 1962 – 14 numbers with Papa Bue, two with Graham Stewart’s band and four where the two bands join forces. This CD is a goldmine for traditional jazz lovers to go back to where it all began!
