Jazz had moved up the river from Storyville, Chicago, called in at Kansas City and found a niche in NYC. Small group swing. Away from the growing emergence of the big bands and ahead of the boppers - Jazz was still dance music.
Originals by Hopkins, Lhorsky and Dawson (Sandancer - a tribute to his home town and the old time music hall act Wilson, Keppel and Betty!) combine with original settings of standards, jazz classics, even JSB's Gavotte1, English Suite No. 6, to give us a potted history of jazz dancing.
Listen to Hipsters Hop.
