When I was a child my parents had a record by the Alberts, Temperance Seven and the Bonzo Dog Band and I loved it. At the time I did not realise that these were bands of the 1960s reliving the music of the 1920s in the Trad/Rad movement, I just loved the sound. Later I came across the Pasadena Roof Orchestra who concentrated less on humour and more on the music. As I grew older I understood the origins better, but recordings from the actual period that inspired these groups often sounded so small and scratchy that they could hardly be enjoyed.

So what a treat to find this compilation, which is of high musical and high audio quality. The transfer from 78 rpm disks is superb, there is almost no hiss or crackle and the dynamic range is about as good as could be hoped for. These are old recordings so there are limits but I can't imagine this being done any better. The fact that they don't sound modern gives them a nostalgic feeling which transports you back in time rather than being a detraction.

It is interesting to note that on Bryn Ferry's album, also called "Jazz Age", where he performs Roxy Music tracks in the style of 1920s jazz, the sound quality has been deliberately reduced to make it sound more authentic.

But more importantly the selection of music on this collection of original tracks is great. Lots of the key musicians of the age and a good varied selection of tunes. Most tracks are instrumental and had my toes tapping all the way through from the first listening. Considering there is around two and a half hours of material here, it is amazing that this never seems monotonous and not a single track I would want to untick in iTunes. The few tracks with vocals are well chosen and dotted here and there to make things interesting.

Over the last couple of decades my interest in music had been on the wain. Originally, my interests begun with music from the late 60s through to the early 80s, eclectic choices of which Mr Ferry was always my favourite artist, and still is - I have all his Roxy and solo recordings. Then late last year Bryan released "The Jazz Age", a brilliant recording of instrumental Roxy/Ferry compositions done in the sound of 1920s jazz. Well, to use a much over used cliche, that CD was a 'breath of fresh air' and had awakened my interest in music again, to the previously untested waters of jazz.

This double CD of mainly instrumental jazz recordings from the 20s and 30s are of superb quality, the mono recordings are sharp and lively - better than I expected from sources dating as far back as 80 and 90 years ago. I am not an expert on the artists, but I love the carefree mood that this 51 collection of jazz creates. Apart from the instrumentals here, there are some superb vocals from Ella Fitzgerald, Mildred Bailey, Cab Calloway, The Boswell Sisters, Hoagy Carmichael and Irving Brodsky.

Since my first foray into jazz thanks to Bryan Ferry, I have added cds from Dave Brubeck and Sonny Rollins to my collection, and I have ordered another 20s jazz cd from Amazon. My interest in music has been revived - thank you Bryan Ferry, who has by the way, an album called "The Great Gatsby" by the Bryan Ferry Orchestra, released on 26th August.

I was born 40 years too late. 25 Aug. 2015
By Charles A. Clemens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I am wild about this 2 CD set. Just as movies from the thirties and forties created archetypes that have been drawn on, copied, and bastardized, these songs from the 20's and the 30's are the Real Deal. I can't stop smiling when I listen to it.
