I see 'Zarate' as the visible label. Who paid for this, and did they have a clue who the subjects actually were?

.... here is his recording of Doctor Jazz.

which goes to show that interpretation is the essence of jazz.

Lord lists over 400 recordings of Doctor Jazz, but only three in the 1920s!!

Here is one from 2007. Scandinavian Rhythm Boys / Jeff Healey Interminable series of solos!!
