      Bent Persson and his cohorts have been doing this sort of thing for nearly 40 years and they are not alone. However, fortunately they do not always slavishly copy the originals - a bit pointless from the jazz angle - if I want to hear it played in the original format I put the records on. Playing in a different style is not 'contamination' but progression, without which jazz will die. Another band that used to play in a similar style but using original arrangements was 'Charquet & Co', a French band with lots of swing and style. Sadly they broke up in 1978 or thereabouts but there are plenty of clips on You Tube and there were at least five LPs of their stuff issued. There are also bands like 'Harlem' which started out life as the 'Dud Clews Jazz Orchestra in Coventry. We should not overly criticise so called 'trad' bands as many of them had highly original styles with unique, if often loose, arrangements. The standard of musicianship in these bands was
      far and away better than anything produced by the 'pop' stars. The work of bands like Chris Barber, Alex Welsh, Kenny Ball, Acker Bilk Terry Lightfoot and many others have stood the test of time and do not sound dated, and four out of these five are still going, though Acker Bilk seems to be not too well these days. One of the most original bands was that run by Steve Lane under the titles of 'The Southern Stompers' and latterly 'The Red Hot Peppers'. Like a lot of 'trad' (how I hate that expression) bands, many were formed in the late 'forties and early 'fifties and there were many excellent musicians to be found among them. They will long be remembered for standing out head and shoulders in the field of poular music.

      Those two YouTube links are great!  As an aficionado of almost forty years for 1920's jazz 78's, I'm usually skeptical about modern replications of it.  Such almost always seems to me to be gimmickry-laden and inauthentic somehow (as if hopelessly "contaminated" by some showy or overly zany "trad" axiom), and I avoid them.  However (and forgive if my aforementioned avoidance of this kind of replication has made me naive), these guys get it pretty spot-on, in my opinion.  They sound more like a 1920's jazz 78 come-to-life than anything I've heard.

        I should have done a google search before asking the question.

        The Library of Congress has the chart -

        If someone has a copy, please contact me -

        The first important set of jazz "stocks" -- published sets of parts for jazz orchestra -- was the Melrose Syncopation Series. Some of these stocks were not deposited for copyright, and are thus not represented in the collections of the Music Division. This is a list of the Melrose Syncopation Series stocks we do have. This list contains only material seen by Wayne Shirley during a search for Melrose stocks made in 1988- 1989. Some other Melrose stocks are not owned by the Library of Congress; some are owned but have not been located.
