Graeme and Roger Bell – The Early Years 1939/1947 (2 CD Set) VJAZZ 007 008 – BEL 161


Probably Australia’s two best-known jazz musicians and their bands are featured on this two-CD set. Very little Australian jazz was recorded in the 1940s but the Museum is fortunate to have located this rare selection of early recordings by this iconic group. Tunes include Ain’t Misbehavin’, Muskrat Ramble, Dippermouth Blues, Ballin’ the Jack, and Who’s Sorry Now.
