Jack Purvis was a strange figure in jazz history. A talented trumpeter who could also play effective trombone starting in the late '20s, Purvis was also a petty thief, a smuggler, a cook, an airplane pilot, and a charming con man. He was in one legendary escapade after another, which finally resulted in a jail sentence, and he never seemed to regret any of his adventures or make any attempt at reform. His remarkable and somewhat unbelievable tale is outlined in detail in Michael Brooks' lengthy and definitive liner notes to this superb three-CD set. Purvis made all of his recordings during 1928-1931 (except for a lone session by pianist Frank Froeba in 1935), leading eight selections of his own and otherwise mostly adding some hot jazz trumpet to dance band dates…

Pre-War Blues, Piano Blues, Urban Blues, Country Blues, Boogie-Woogie

This compilation disc contains an astonishing array of blues and boogie-woogie piano artists that will be of interest to anyone who has an ear for this genre of music. Some of the selections are outtakes, while others are never-before-released recordings. The latter are from vinyl records that were made in the '40s. Among the artists featured are Lee Green, Judson Brown with Charlie "Bozo" Nicherson, Leroy Carr with Scrapper Blackwell, Charles "Cow Cow" Davenport, Georgia Tom with Tampa Red, Memphis Slim, Little Brother Montgomery, Roosevelt Sykes with Walter Davis, Thomas A. Dorsy, Ivy Smith, Ezra Howelett Shelton, Cripple Clarence Lofton, Jimmy and Mama Yancey, and Alonzo Yancey. The quality of the recordings is variable, but listening to them is still worthwhile for their historical and musical value. The repertoire ranges from the well-known "The Girl I'm Looking For," "Beer Drinking Woman," and "Church House Blues" to the more obscure "Mama and Jimmy Blues," "Deep End Boogie," and "Poor Old Bachelor Blues." Dialogue by various artists is interspersed throughout this fascinating historical document.

Latin / Tejano / Corrido / Mexican Traditions / Norteno / Tex-Mex

The first album in Arhoolie's superb Tex-Mex series, this traces the roots of the modern norteño-Tejano-conjunto sound. We hear the early accordion players and duet singers, then see them come together in the 1930s and '40s, forming the heart of the style as it has existed ever since. All the key names are here, from the blind fiddler El Ciego Melquiades to the magnificent Texan diva Lydia Mendoza, accordion pioneers Santiago Jiménez and Narciso Martinez, and the trend-setting Alegres de Teran. A 36-page booklet puts the music in context and makes this an essential purchase for anyone interested in border music.
