Joe “King” Oliver moved from New Orleans to Chicago and changed the world! He brought red-hot jazz north. He was the reigning champion of the night clubs and a top-selling recording artist. Before you know it, he was so busy he decided to send for his protege who was just in his twenties in New Orleans. That young man’s name: Louis Armstrong. When putting together Oliver’s 1928 contract with the Victor label, King asked for the unheard of advance of $1,000. He got it. Now you can have those very recordings he made for Victor between 1929 and 1930.
