America's Highest-Priced Orchestra -- May 7, 2022

New York Evening News, 14-May-1922

On 26-February-1917, the Original Dixieland Jass Band made the first known jazz record, "Livery Stable Blues" and "Dixieland Jass Band One-Step," at the Victor studios. 

This is an ad for a residency at the Rosebud Ballroom in Coney Island. Sadly, the ODJB members went on to insist that jazz was invented by white people, specifically themselves.
