CD Reviews

The Real Deal for some Big Fat Dixieland Jazz...
Sébastien Melmoth | Hôtel d'Alsace, PARIS | 03/15/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

Yep. This is the real deal. The real thing: not an ersatz, faux imitation. This is some big fat Dixieland Jazz from ol'Nawlins--the old original New Orleans.

Recorded in New Orleans, 22 Aug. 1965, this is a pick-up sextet performing classic ensemble Jazz.

Jim Robinson (trombone), George Lewis (clarinet), and Bunk Johnson (trumpet), were born in the 19th Century, and were playing in New Orleans c.1910 when Jazz originated--that is, when Jazz broke out of its embryo of Ragtime, Stride, and the Delta Blues. In this milieu, Jelly-Roll Morton, King Oliver, Kid Ory, and of course Louis Armstrong all contributed to the evolution and formation of Jazz.

Breakdown and pick up:

Bunk Johnson - 1944 (Second Masters)
Jazz Funeral in New Orleans
Blues and Stomps from Rare Piano Rolls
The Louis Armstrong Collection, Vol. 4: Louis Armstrong and Earl Hines

On some hot day or night: make some jambalya, wash it down with ice-cold beer, dig these fat Dixie tracks,

"summon up remembrance of things past,
And moan th' expense of many a vanished sight."
