Frog Records presents a fine album of vintage Chicago jazz recorded between 1925 and 1929 by various little bands under the leadership of Richard Marigny Jones (1892-1945), whose limping gait prompted other musicians to nickname him "McKnee" or "My Knee." This music was originally released to the public on 78-rpm records bearing the OKeh, Vocalion, Paramount, and Victor imprints. With the exception of "All Night Shags" and "Put Me in the Alley Blues," which were issued as by the Chicago Hottentots, everything here was presented under the heading of Richard M. Jones & His Jazz Wizards. Jones, a solid pianist most famous for having composed "Trouble in Mind" and "Jazzin' Babies Blues," is heard in the company of clarinetists Albert Nicholas, Omer Simeon, and Artie Starks; cornetist Shirley Clay; trombonist Preston Jackson; banjoists Johnny St. Cyr and Ikey Robinson; and tuba wrestler Quinn Wilson. This compilation includes alternate takes of (or sequels to) "Novelty Blues" and "Tickle Britches Blues." While not as highly acclaimed as the records made during this period by Louis Armstrong, these historical performances compare nicely with the Chicago-based recordings of Johnny Dodds, King Oliver, Freddie Keppard, and Jimmie Noone. No reissue label has yet succeeded in bringing out literally everything in the Richard M. Jones discography. Document has produced several volumes under his name, and the French have done an excellent job with their Classics Chronological Series. Frog's Good Stuff is a superb introduction to this kind of scruffy Windy City jazz of the 1920s, and is highly recommended for those who aren't too fussy to kick back and enjoy it for what it is rather than kvetching about what it isn't. ~ arwulf arwulf
