All That Jass

This week marks the 100th Anniversary of the recording of the first Jazz record.  It was cut at Victor Records in New York City by a bunch from New Orleans that called themselves The Original Dixieland Jass Band.  They later changed Jass to Jazz, and went on to record Dixieland classics like Tiger Rag. The band has been around in several versions over the years and the original members were elected posthumously to the Jazz Hall of Fame.
