In this edition I pay tribute to the first "officially" Jazz recording by the Original Dixieland Jazz band in January 1917 and I feature some of the group's compositions interpreted and recorded by other musicians on it's way into a new century of Jazz history. You can hear music by Duke Ellington, Bix Beiderbecke, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Arturo Sandoval, Benny Goodman, Humphrey Lyttelton, Art Pepper and the Hot 8 Brass Band.
TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE is live on air on CRC102.9fm and on www.crcfm.ie every Thursday 8-9 pm with a repeat on Saturday 9-10 pm. And there is a podcast of the show available on the web site all through the week. The show has established itself over the years with a small but devoted listenership (even beyond Jazz-fans) and since the introduction on internet the listenership extended nationally and internationally.
