A Jazz Nursery The Story Of The Jenkins' Orphanage Bands


Out of stock


“This slender volume is the result of research that spanned a decade. It was inspired by my reading casual references to the Jenkins’ Orphanage Bands in the reminiscences of several well-known jazz musician. When I look into the bands history and discovered that ex-members has worked with jelly Roll Morton, Duke Ellington, Fletcher Henderson, James Europe, The southern Syncopated Orchestra, Bessie Smith, Luis, Lionel Hampton, Count Basie and Dizzy Gillespie, I realized that I was investing an important part of African American musical heritage-one that has been virtually ignored by other researchers. The fact that a Jenkins’s Band first came to Europe before 1900 further stimulated my interest.” John Chilton.
