Professor of Music Dr. Douglas Bomberger has published an article entitled “‘Misfortunes Never Come Singly’: Verifying the Release Date of the Original Dixieland Jazz Band’s First Record” in _The Jazz Archivist_ Vol. 32 (2019). In this article, he examines the evidence surrounding the release date of one of history’s most influential records: The Original Dixieland Jazz Band’s “Livery Stable Blues” of 1917. Although the record has long been recognized as the first jazz instrumental recording, scholars have not agreed on the date when this record became available in stores nationwide. Drawing on the band’s personal papers in the Hogan Jazz Archive at Tulane University, copyright records in The Library of Congress, and digital newspaper databases, Dr. Bomberger has found the answer to this scholarly question.
