The Monarch Jazz Quartet was an unknown vocal harmony group thought to be from Norfolk, Virginia. The group appears to have recorded religious material under the name of the Jubilee Quartet of Norfolk at the same time that these secular records were made. Some Jazz historians think that the group as actually the Norfolk Jazz Quartet. The picture of the band on the right is purported to be the Monarch Jazz Quartet and is from an Okeh Records advertisement from 1929.
