Event Details

On February 26, 1917, The Original Dixieland Jazz Band recorded Livery Stable Blues and Dixie Jass Band One-Step. Available for sale on March 17, 1917 at a cost of 75 cents, Victor Recording #18255 was the first Jazz record ever issued.

In anticipation of this eventful day, The Cherry Blossom Orchestra will be presenting a concert paying full tribute to the trailblazing Original Dixieland Jazz Band, as well as showcasing many landmark recordings from the first 25 years of recorded jazz. Historic works featuring Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Jelly Roll Morton, James P. Johnson and many others will be performed for a full and exhilarating celebration during jazz’s most important period. Into the Roaring Twenties, the Big Band Swinging Thirties and the Bluesy Forties – this is the debut performance of this unique centennial celebration in the state’s capital. There will be music AND education along the way.

Join us at this vibrant, prospering venue in the heart of downtown Salem, with the added bonus of a beautiful ‘Gatsby’ themed bar and restaurant attached ‘Paradiso At The Grand’.
