Recorded in Chicago on June 11th 1927 with Ed Lewis and Paul Webster trumpets, Thamon Hayes trombone, Harlan Leonard clarinet & soprano sax, Woody Walder clarinet & tenor sax, LaForest Dent alto & baritone sax, Jack Washington clarinet, alto, & baritone sax, Bennie Moten piano & director, Leroy Berry banjo, Vernon Page bass brass, and Willie McWashington drums.
*"The New Tulsa Blues" was composed by Bennie Moten.
The jazz of Bennie Moten broke away from its New Orleans influence to take on unique stylistic traits identified by a sophisticated orchestrated approach and stomping beat. Like a mid-Western swing the "Kansas City Sound" as it came to be known introduced a new branch for the genre. This new style was also defined by a great deal more soloing than in Dixieland, usually played in succession by every member of the band). Long expressive saxophone solos in addition to rhythm section and piano breaks make the music inspiring and powerful.
