The post-revolution period in Russia was a crazy, try-anything time for the arts, a bit like in Wiemar Germany. Official control would be increasingly asserted in the later 20s and early 30s.
In the meantime, someone got off some jazz recordings.
Internet experts place this recording in 1935, based on label information, which would pretty much be the tail end of the permissive period for musical styles. Contains brief trombone solo.
This one is said to be 1953 or later, again based on the label info. It's almost like they picked where they left off after a 20 year freeze.
Pictures, video, etc.
