The Jazz Club will present its ninth concert of the season at Jordan Hall on Sunday afternoon at 3 P.M., featuring the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, with Brad Gowans, Bobby Hackett, Eddie Edwards, Tony "Spargo" Sbarbaro and Teddy Roy. Edwards and Sbarbaro were charter members of the group that made jazz history over a quarter-century ago. Gowans, who organized the present group and Hackett are well known to followers of dixieland jazz for their work with various small bands in New York Boston and Chicago.
Bobby Hackett will be interviewed by S/Sgt George Avakian over the CRIMSON Network at 7 o'clock Thursday night.
The band follows the original organization's work closely, and Brad, who know the ODJB records by heart and emulous clarinetist Larry Shields, has re-scored many of the old arrangements used for the old records. Several of these have been transcribed for radio stations and for V-Dises to be sent to troops oversees.
