Alberta Hunter Acc. By Memphis Five - Paramount 12016 (1923)

(From a store stock 78)

Was just reading where these sides are considered the first of their kind...but not exactly sure of what the "first of their kind" means.

Another article considers Jelly Roll Morton's and the New Orleans Rhythm Kings recordings, waxed a few months after these, as the first interracial jazz, again, what does the "first of their kind" mean?

Alberta Hunter v / Phil Napoleon t / Charlie Panelli tb / Jimmy Lytell cl / Frank Signorelli p / Jack Roth d.
