Firehouse Five plus Two Dixieland Favorites
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This CD contains a great hour plus assortment of Dixieland music played by a very talented group of musicians. The sound quality is right up there with some of the best CDs produced. This CD will be difficult to match, let alone beat for Dixieland enthusiasts. A solid five stars ... closer to six."
FireHouse Plus Two -Dixieland Favorites Sept 11, 2001

"One of the great appeals of traditional Dixieland music is the distinct beat obtained by using a banjo and tuba for the rhythm section. "Modern" Dixieland bands tend to use drums and base for the rhythm section. The beat just doesn't compare - listen to their rendition of Muskat Ramble where the banjo and tuba will set your feet tapping! Sound quality of this CD is excellent. Highly recommended for Dixieland fans."
At the top of their form!

"The great musicianship and spirit of the Firehouse Five Plus Two is at its best in this album. I believe the group did its best work in the years when George Probert played soprano sax with them, and this CD contains some of Probert's finest work. His extended solo on "Canal Street Blues" is perhaps the most expressive soprano sax playing this side of Sidney Bechet. If you're going to own only one Firehouse Five Plus Two recording (though I can't imagine why anyone would stop at just one!), this would be my choice."
