Oriental Illusions
Various Artists

America's fascination with the Orient at the start of the twentieth century fostered the beginning of "Chinamania." The average American knew very little about the mysterious Far East, but that was about to change. Songwriters began to pen songs about China and this continued well into the 1930s. This compilation contains historical performances that show the influence China had on Western music.

Liet. James Europe's 369th U.S. Infantry
James Reese Europe

James Reese Europe was the world's most accomplished African-American bandleader before 1920. He was internationally famous as the founder of New York's Clef Club and as music director for Vernon and Irene Castle. During World War I, he organized the all-black 369th U.S. Infantry "Hell Fighters" Band. They fought in the trenches, introduced that new music "Jazz" to the Continent, and were acclaimed in France and America as the greatest-ever regimental band. In May, 1919, the "Hell Fighters" were on the last leg of their triumphal U.S. Victory Concert Tour when Europe was murdered at age 39. All twenty-four recordings he made for Pathe in the last two months of his life are collected on this CD as well as 44 pages of liner notes and rare photographs.
