Bennie Moten's Kansas City Orchestra - Get Low Down Blues (192x)

Kansas City的爵士風格很獨特,不經修飾,而且和新奧爾良爵士一樣都帶有藍調成分。其中較為不同的是,Kansas City的風格注重於更多的敲擊樂器上,和同一年代 (20 - 30s)新奧爾良街上玩耍的音樂很像,但是他們卻把這種風格作為正式表演和錄製的方式。Bennie Moten是開拓Kansas City風格爵士的領導人物之一。他作曲并彈奏鋼琴。在二三十年代錄製了很多唱盤。他對往後爵士音樂的發展做出了很大的貢獻。有聽同一年代新奧爾良風格爵士的朋友應該會發現,Kansas City的爵士更爲輕巧和跳躍式。這是和其敲擊樂器有關。這種風給也爲往後發展起來的節奏藍調和搖滾做好了基礎。

Bennie Moten (November 13, 1894 – April 2, 1935) was a noted American jazz pianist and band leader born in Kansas City, Missouri.

He led the Kansas City Orchestra, the most important of the regional, blues-based orchestras active in the Midwest in the 1920s, and helped to develop the riffing style that would come to define many of the 1930s Big Bands.

His first recordings were made (for OKeh Records) in 1923, and were rather typical interpretations of the New Orleans style ofKing Oliver and others. They also showed the influence of the Ragtime that was still popular in the area. These OKeh sides (recorded 1923-1925) are some of the more valuable acoustic jazz 78's of the era and continue to be treasured records in many serious jazz collections.
