The Loudest Trumpet - Buddy Bolden and the Early History of Jazz


273 pages


Buddy Bolden has long been a mystical figure in jazz. A musician who found a new way to play dance music for the black people of uptown New Orleans, there are no known recordings of his music.
The author has reviewed existing historical evidence, oral accounts of people who knew Bolden and those musicians who followed him, pictures of the bands, surviving music scores and recordings, to try and answer questions such as: what was the music like?, How did it evolve in New Orleans?, what was it's effect on the sound that was to follow? and where did it come from?
