jazz. I certainly don't but if you do, there is Mississippi Suite (Victor
25859), September 1927; Metropolis (4 parts on Victor 35933/4), March 1928;
Tchaikovskiana (Columbia 50113-D), June 1928.
And that's not counting the recordings of Gershwin compositions, which I
assume no one regards as jazz.
