Whereas a truly overarching examination of the triumphant and tragic career of reedman, composer, and arranger Fud Livingston would require more than 26 tracks on one CD, Jazz Oracle's meticulously researched and thoughtfully annotated salute to this overlooked character is entirely unprecedented, for nobody has bothered much about Fud over the years. More generally, this is also a fascinating and highly recommended survey of vintage hot jazz, popular dance music, and early swing. True to form, Jazz Oracle delves back to what must be among the earliest surviving examples of Fud on record, for it is doubtful that he pressed any platters with Talmadge Henry back in Greensboro in The Livingston saga picks up again with five consecutive examples frombeginning with one sole example by the Charleston Chasersa friendly little mob that included Red NicholsMiff Moleand Pee Wee Russell.
In title and substance so to speak this number appears to have been somewhat of a self-portrait. After "Singapore Sorrows" is played by a piece orchestra, the unit is pared down to Anytime octet for "Nobody's Anywhere - Fud Livingston - The Story Of Joseph Fud Livingston. This charmingly historic portrait album closes with a Victor test pressing of "I've Found a New Baby" played by pianist Bob Zurke 's short-lived man big band in using an arrangement by Livingston and a hitherto undiscovered ARC test pressing of Fud singing while accompanying himself at the piano.
