- Sep 28, 2007Also Stravinsky wrote for M. Woody Herman his Ebony Concerto (1945) not that
much a ragtime piece. Darius Milhaud was in Harlem, at the end of the
twenties, where he bought a lot of Black Swan Records. And in a place
called the "Boeuf sur le toit" in, Paris many jazz musicians played, close
to ragtimme but sometimes really hot like Crickett Smith who reorded behind
the voice of the french poet Jean Cocteau in 1929 (Pathé recrodings). French
surréalists poets Leiris and Desnos was found of Ethel Waters and Lee Morse
but didn't semes to know bessie Smith or MA or IDa. . Paris "des années 20"
was a place where people could heard Billy Arnold, Louis Mitchell, and some
more groups. It has been said that young Django spend most of his night
listening to the band of Billy Arnold.
Satie and Debussy take part of their inspiration in "Ministrel Songs", too.
Sorry for my english I hope I make myself undestood. Good day.
Satie (and Stravinsky) seemed to have been influenced
more by ragtime than what we would call jazz, but
Europeans were introduced to something like our jazz
in the First World War, when, among other, the James
Europe military band went over and played a wide
variety of musics, including orchestrated ragtime.
I also remember seeing a recording by a Swedish jazz
band doing a straight-up imitation of the Original
Dixieland Jazz Band....in 1919!
