It's a shame that our memories are so limited.  Who do most people remember when it comes to music from the 1920s?  Louis Armstrong, certainly.  Bix Beiderbecke, maybe.  Adrian Rollini?  Not likely.

Yet, for those who take music from the 1920s seriously, Rollini is respected as one of the truly great musical talents of his time. A true multi-instrumentalist, Rollini was equally skilled at piano, drums, xylophone, and bass saxophone,  In fact, it was Rollini who established the bass saxophone as one of the iconic features of 1920s hot jazz.

Please enjoy Adrian Rollini on "After You've Gone".
