The first instrumental record by a black orchestra (i.e., the first black jazz record) was cut in Los Angeles: Ory's Creole Trombone (july 1922) by Edward "Kid" Ory's Creole Orchestra,
formed in 1919 by that veteran New Orleans band-leader with former New Orleans
musicians who had relocated to the West Coast. Ory stayed in Los Angeles
until 1925, before moving on to Chicago, where he contributed to Louis Armstrong's success (e.g., his Muskrat Ramble, recorded by Armstrong in february 1926).
