Great Hot Dixieland
Clint Hunter | 01/18/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The music on "Fireworks" is a compilation of performances recorded at the Riverwalk Landing in San Antonio between 1990 and 1994. I had the good fortune to see the Jim Cullum Jazz Band there on several occasions prior to the time of these sessions. The album was recorded during live broadcasts for NPR. Cullum and his group play good swinging Dixieland Jazz. Two of my favorite tracks on the album are Cullum's rendition of Duke Ellington's "It Don't Mean A Thing" featuring vocals by Clark Terry and Benny Goodman's "7 Come 11" featuring Lionel Hampton and Allan Vache. Vache really brings back memories of the Goodman style. Terry is also featured on a rather goofy presentation called "Mumbles" which is bound to bring on unbelieving chuckles from any listener. If you like great improvisation and hot, feel good, hard driving Dixieland, you'll really enjoy the Jim Cullum Jazz Band."
JELLY ROLL the Bonus Track

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Vernel Bagneris' tribute to Jelly Roll Morton, JELLY ROLL won both the Drama Desk and Lucille Lortell as Best-Off Broadway Muisical (1994-1995).It also won Mr Bagneris an Obie for his portrayal of Mr Morton. A cast album is available . DR JAZZ however, wasn't included in JELLY ROLL.Finding another Jelly Roll number by Mr Bagneris is a treat indeeed."
