"Jug Band Jazz"


This side was recorded in Chicago on December 10th 1926 featuring the following players: Clifford Hayes violin & leader, Curtis Hayes banjo & vocals, Lockwood Lewis alto sax, Emmitt Perkins and Cal Smith banjos, and Earl McDonald and Henry Clifford jugs.

*"Boodle Am Shake" was composed by Jack Palmer and Spencer Williams.

The "Dixieland Jug Blowers" were a popular studio band of the 1920's that incorporated the use of jazz and jazz instruments (such as; alto saxophone, trombone, piano, & clarinet) into a traditional jug band setting. Their music would have a lasting and undeniable influence on other similar groups like the "Memphis Jug Band".

The band recorded by Victor as the "Dixieland Jug Blowers" in 1926 was actually two separate groups one led by traditionalist jug blower Earl McDonald and the other under the leadership of his cousin and jazz influenced fiddler Clifford Hayes. -They would all be brought together in Chicago once more for a followup recording session in 1927.
