Rewind 006: Blues, Jazz, and R&B

Oklahoma Rock Show: Rewind is your home for the music of Oklahoma’s past.

On this episode, we look at Oklahoma blues and jazz musicians. The genres flourished in Oklahoma supper clubs and ballrooms in the early 20th century, not only in all-black towns, but also in sections of larger cities (Tulsa’s Greenwood District, Oklahoma City’s Deep Deuce District, and Muskogee’s South 2nd Street).
