Transcription Mystery Disc #153
Jazz Duo: Piano and Clarinet
The recording is of a very skilled jazz duo playing piano and clarinet. The chord changes are similar to the Lovin' Spoonful tune "What A Day For A Daydream," though thsi clearly predates that. their style is somewhat reminiscent of Barney Bigard's work decades later. Phonozoic dates these blanks as "pre-1950" which is all we have to go on. My guess is that the metal core planks are pre-WWII and the paper core are peak war and later.
