Ma Rainey med band

“In all the critical writing about jazz, and especially the blues, there is all too little mention of the part the theatre – the old tent shows, or later the TOBA vaudeville circuit – had on the evolution of the blues and jazz. Well here’s one of those numbers and as you listen to it you may, as I did, wish that radio and other assorted forces had not knocked such shows off into ash can.”
