Synopsis

Amazon.com
Of all the traditional revivalists of the 1940s and 1950s, trombonist Kid Ory had the deepest roots and the most illustrious career, reaching back to New Orleans at the turn of the century and to the first authentic jazz recording sessions in the early 1920s. His groups demonstrated the highest levels of musicianship, mixing New Orleans veterans with younger players, and that's clearly in evidence in this fine set. This edition of the group--a septet including trumpeter Alvin Alcorn, pianist Don Ewell, and drummer Minor Hall--brings something special, whether stately or joyous, to a program that includes "Gettysburg March," Jelly Roll Morton's "Wolverine Blues," and Ory's signature "Muskrat Ramble." --Stuart Broomer
 

CD Reviews

Authentic, great Dixie

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The first time Louis Armstrong was paid to play was in Kid Ory's Jazz Band in New Orleans. Louis was among the first Louisiana musicians to go north to Chicago. When he saw how blacks could live in the North, he passed the word to his friends in the South. Kid Ory was the trombone on those fabulous Hot Five and Hot Seven 78 RPM records of the 20's. Here we have Kid Ory's Creole Jazz Band in HI-FI. Great Dixieland!"
