Johnny Dodds was born in Waveland, Mississippi in 1892 and relocated to New Orleans during his adolescence. There he studied clarinet under the instruction of the Lorenzo Tio and became a renowned stylist who went on to play in the bands of Frankie Duson, Kid Ory, and Joe "King" Oliver. After moving to Chicago Dodds made his first recordings with "Oliver's Creole Jazz Band" in 1923 and remained in The Windy City where he later worked with Jelly Roll Morton and Louis Armstrong.
