I am proud to present you the oldest know Chilean Jazz recording.

Entitled "I Tenía Un Lunar", this Shimmy was composed by Mr. José Bohr in 1925 and recorded by the Chilean label "Royal Record" sometime in 1926, in Santiago de Chile (Royal Record was property of Mr. Efraín Band, owner of the first Chilean discographic label, "Fonografía Artística"). We are unable to know the name of the band, because during the 1910s and the 1920s, Chilean labels kept their artists anonymously, being credited only as "Band", "Tenor" or "Soprano"; musicians whose identity have been lost forever.

PS. It's unknown if this is a pirate pressing.
