JAZZ AGE JAZZ - You Ain’t The One #AtoZChallenge 1928 song by Charlie Johnson’s Paradise Ten Click To Tweet

Y (AtoZ Challenge 2016)David Sager : “an insouciant melody with a hip lyric almost irresistibly tossed off here by Monette Moore (with some engaging fiddling by Edgar Sampson behind her). Perhaps the thing most will remember about this recording is the stabbing, biting trumpet of Jabbo Smith, then only 19 years old and with so much to say musically. But we also should not ignore the inventive drumming of the little-recorded George Stafford. Uneasiness pervades, however, due to the band’s rushing the tempo. In just over three minutes, they pick up about 24 beats per minute by the end of the performance.”

About the Author

I was born, raised and I still live near Verona (Italy), though I worked for a time in Dublin. I started writing fantasy stories as a kid. Today I’m a bookseller who reads fantasy, history, mythology, anthropology and lots of speculative fiction. Somehow, all of this has found its way into my own dieselpunk stories.

  1. That is an amazing trumpet part – hearing trumpets like that always makes me think of Jungle Book – I Wanna Be Like You 🙂

    • True, eh? I discovered a lot of songs I like, during this challenge. As well as discovering that I do like 1920s jazz. It isn’t a music that it chatches you right away, and it’s true that I’ve learned to appreciate it while learning about its history. But now I really enjoying listen to it 🙂

  3. Wonderful music and great images. I’ve learned so much from your posts!!!

    • Isn’t it wonderful that there is so much to discover about the 1900s on the internet alone? Only a couple of decades ago, this kind of challenge wouldn’t have been possible.

  4. You ain’t the one is the one I ain’t never heard before. But I like it, and the vintage photos attached.
