Original Indiana Five - Harmony 217 (1926)

Still on the lookout for a clean copy of the Original Indiana Five on Harmony 58.

From The Red Hot Jazz Archive

The Original Indiana Five were not from Indiana. Their name was an apparent attempt to sound like other bands of the day that had names like the Original Memphis Five and the Original New Orleans Jazz Band. The band played mainly in New York City and were broadcast on the radio. They were active from sometime in the late Teens or early 1920s to 1929. They also recorded under the name of John Sylvester and his Orchestra. The group got back together in 1948 and played in New York until sometime in the early 1950s.

Recorded in New York on May 18, 1926.
