This chapter focuses on the history of Kid Ory’s musical career during the period from 1919 to 1925. It explains that Ory’s move to California and those of Louis Armstrong and Joe Oliver were all part of the Great Migration of 1915–29, when southern blacks moved to major urban areas. Since his arrival, Ory had met with great success in California, which included Sunshine recordings, live radio broadcasts, movie work, and Hollywood parties. The chapter also mentions his decision to move to Chicago in 1925 as the city emerged as the premiere showcase for jazz.

Keywords:   Kid Ory, musical career, California, Louis Armstrong, Joe Oliver, Great Migration, Sunshine recordings, movie work, live radio broadcasts, Hollywood parties
