For a kid who liked jazz, Chicago was a great town to grow up in. Musicians had begun working their way north from New Orleans about the turn of the century, and by the early 1920s giants like ‘Jellyroll’ Morton, Sidney Bechet, ‘King’ Oliver and Louis Armstrong were playing in Chicago and making history.

Kids who paid attention to this development were going to make history themselves in a few more years – Bud Freeman, Davie Tough, Eddie Condon, Milt Mesirow (Mezz Mezzrow), Gene Krupa, ‘Muggsy’ Spanier, Jimmy McPartland, Jess Stacy – and a kid in short pants who played the clarinet.
