The first jass record was committed to wax today in 1917

On February 26th 1917, an all-white group of musicians known as The Original Dixieland Jass Band, stepped into a studio at Victor Talking Machine Company in New York City, and recorded “Livery Stable Blues.” This marked the first time that jass had ever been committed to wax. The cut would sell over a million copies (.75c retail)

    There was an ugly side to Nick La Rocca that I did not touch on in the piece.
