Home Again Blues
Original Dixieland Jass Band
Feat. Benny Krueger
This recording was produced in New York City on January 28th 1921 by the "Original Dixieland Jass Band" featuring Nick LaRocca cornet, Eddie Edwards trombone, Larry Shields clarinet, Benny Krueger c-melody sax, Frank Signorelli piano, and Tony Sbarbaro drums.
*"Home Again Blues" was composed by Harry Akst and Irving Berlin.
The "Original Dixieland Jass Band" contributed much to the early jazz idiom most importantly the genre's first official audio recording, 1917's "Livery Stable Blues". By the time this record was made in 1921 Nick LaRocca and his band-mates were being pressured by the Victor label to keep up with the rapidly changing musical trends. This meant including a studio selected saxophonist named Benny Krueger on all of their future releases ...
LaRocca was livid.
