Lifecycle of a Mushroom: Music Research 1

As mentioned in a previous comment, I have a mid 20th Century American visual influence and one of the great influences on visual artists at the time was Jazz. I get the feeling that music of Miles Davis and his ilk is perhaps too raw. So I've gone further back to the early pioneers of Jazz and big band music.

I have concerns over the type of music I can use in terms of copyright and so on. What is the situation in regards to this?

Louis Armstrong - West End Blues 1928

Louis Armstrong - Basin St Blues 1928

Louis Armstrong - Savoy Blues 1927

Jelly Roll Morton - Pretty Lil 1929

Jelly Roll Morton - Dr Jazz 1926

Bix Beiderbecke - Royal Garden Blues 1927

Bix Beiderbecke - At the Jazz Band Ball 1927

  1. Hey Tom - all music has to be copyright free; there maybe tracks that are 'outside' of copyright - because of the age of the recordings. That said, it's just useful for you to get a clearer idea of the sort of copyright free music you might be interested in sourcing.

    (Just listened to the 'Vocal Jazz Symphony' preview and instantly thought, 'hey, interesting...').
