Like any profound technological breakthrough, the advent of sound recording ushered in a period of explosive and imaginative experimentation, growth and competition. Between the commercial debut of Edison’s “talking machine” in 1889 and the first commercial radio broadcast three decades later, the recording industry was uncharted territory in terms of both technology and content. This history of the earliest years of sound recording—the time between the phonograph’s appearance and the licensing of commercial radio—examines a newly created technology and industry in search of itself. It follows the story from the earliest efforts to capture sound, to the fight among wire, cylinder and disk recordings for primacy in the market, to the growth and development of musical genres, record companies and business practices that remain current today. The work chronicles the people, events and developments that turned a novel, expensive idea into a highly marketable commodity. Two appendices provide extensive lists of popular genre and ethnic recordings made between 1889 and 1919. A bibliography and index accompany the text.

Wilbur C. Sweatman (1882-1961) is one of the most important, yet unheralded, African. American musicians involved in the transition of ragtime into jazz in the early twentieth. century. In That's Got 'Em!, Mark Berresford tracks this energetic pioneer over a. seven-decade career. His talent transformed every genre of black music before the. advent of rock and roll?pickaninny bands, minstrelsy, circus sideshows, vaudeville. (both black and white), night clubs, and cabarets. Sweatman was the first African. American musician to be offered a long-term recording contract, and he dazzled. listeners with jazz clarinet solos before the Original Dixieland Jazz Band's so-called first. jazz records.. Sweatman toured the vaudeville circuit for over twenty years and presented African. American music to white music lovers without resorting to the hitherto obligatory. plantation costumes and blackface makeup. His bands were a fertile breeding ground. of young jazz talent, featuring such future stars as Duke Ellington, Coleman Hawkins, . and Jimmie Lunceford. Sweatman subsequently played pioneering roles in radio and. recording production. His high profile and sterling reputation in both the black and. white entertainment communities made him a natural choice for administering the. estate of Scott Joplin and other notable black performers and composers. That's Got. 'Em! is the first full-length biography of this pivotal figure in black popular culture, . providing a compelling account of his life and times
