2 CD set This is the first of what we hope is a series of CDs documenting what has colloquially become known in collecting circles as 'EuroJazz.’ Lud Gluskin was one of the most successful American jazz musicians to cross the Atlantic in the 1920s to work in Europe. For about 6 years, he and his ensemble worked at the leading French and German upper class entertainment establishments. The band was featured in movies, did studio work for film studios as well as 450 recordings for different record companies. Musically, the Gluskin band reached its peak in 1929 when a large number of recordings among them some milestones of jazz in Europe were made for several German record companies. These two CDs offer a selection of recordings representative of Gluskin's activities in Europe over a 10 year period. The transfers are in chronological order as far as the recording dates could be ascertained. Several recordings on this compilation have never been reissued before and some of the records were until recently unknown.
