Edward Kid Ory

Friday 1 August 2008 22:30-23:30 (Radio 3)

Trombonist Edward Kid Ory is generally regarded as the father of jazz trombone playing and in this programme, Alyn Shipton is joined by traditional jazz expert and fellow slide player Michael Pointon to select the highlights of Ory's work. These range from the first recordings by a black American band with his Sunshine Orchestra in 1921 to his triumphs in the jazz revival of the 1940s and 50s with such colleagues as the trumpeter Henry Red Allen.
