Here Is Jazz Old Time Online
17,877 Real Audio streams of public domain jazz recordings, 17,147 of which are available as mp3 downloads for $5 for 3 months. Run a search on a favorite and see what they have. Man, all those Don Redman sides--I may just break down and get a Paypal account. Hate Realplayer ? Well, fight the power and use Real Alternative aka Media Player Classic instead.

Wow. It's so hard to find traditional jazz. And Real Alternative was news to me.

Chapeau, monsieur. Chapeau.

This is utterly useless. Terrible post.

Note: The above comment to be interpreted in its inverse meaning.

Well, I just came across this today and now I must say that I'm Having Myself A Time. Try a song title on search--there's an amazing amount of variations on Honeysuckle Rose, for example. Try a search for your favorite bluesman, too--Mississippi John Hurt is quite well represented. Not like, say, Mildred Bailey or Doris Day--from when she was young and hip, mind you--or Hoagy Carmichael, but still...

And, Jazz Schmazz, there's a whole lot of everything--like beau coup sides of the Charlie Poole and His North Carolina Ramblers--they even got your It's Movin' Day!

psst, y2karl: just out of curiosity, did you by any chance discover this excellent site while doing a little research on those Josh White links you posted in my FPP on him? Cause I see the Josh White clip you linked to in that thread is from Jazz Online. Anyway, if so, lemme know! That would be a source of great delight for me! And again, this is a GREAT find! Wow!

Makes me appreciate the long-established and scholarly Red Hot Jazz Archive all the more.

I have heard of that.

Whoa, that was a blast from the past--dong resin and insomnia_lj, too! Man, insomnia_lj and Hoagy Carmichael--there's two names even a seven year vet here would not put together.

And, having never looked at his user page before, I have to admit I did not know his history with Live Journal. He was an o.g. live journalist, indeed.
