JOHNSON, J.P.: Yamekraw / RESER, H.: Suite / GERSHWIN, G.: Rhapsody in Blue (Jazz Nocturne - American Concertos of the Jazz Age) (Rosenberg)

In his famous novel The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald coined the phrase ‘the Jazz Age’ to describe the flamboyant era that emerged in America after World War I. George Gershwin’s immortal A Rhapsody in Blue is heard here in its complete original version for jazz band as orchestrated by Ferde Grofé, who also orchestrated the Concerto in Three Rhythms by Dana Suesse (dubbed the ‘Girl Gershwin’ by The New Yorker). The second theme from her Jazz Nocturne became a popular hit when Bing Crosby crooned it under the title My Silent Love. Master banjoist Harry F. Reser’s exuberant Suite demands an extraordinary technique from the soloist. ‘Fats’ Waller was the pianist for the première of African-American composer James Price Johnson’s blues-inflected Yamekraw.
