"This may be Kid Thomas's finest recording. It was a makeshift studio session with his working band of the time that included Emanuel Paul on tenor sax rather than the traditional clarinet player. This was a band that played all kinds of tunes including pop songs of the day and usually played for dancers in taverns and road houses. Louis Nelson would play lead on his trombone while Emanuel Paul played notes all around him. Kid Thomas would pitch stacatto bursts from his trumpet at periodic intervals that would embellish the melody. No other New Orleans band played this way. Kid Thomas was certainly an original and much of his musical output is worth owning. This disc is a must have for Kid Thomas fans and anyone else even remotely interested in great New Orleans jazz."
