"The real title to this CD is "Jazz in St.Louis 1924-1927" and features many artist such as: Chas Creach, Dewey Jackson, Zutty Singleton, Pops Foster, Phil Baxter, and last but never least Jelly-Roll Morton. There are 23 vintage cuts and each is a prime slice of depression era blues and jazz at its riverside best. The engineers who mixed these vintage cuts did a minimum of "cleaning" and thus you get just a faint touch of crackle/and imperfection just like you would have heard on a hand-crank Victrola on hot summer night in prohibition era St. Louis. Tunes such as "Market Street Blues" and "I Woke Up Cold In Hand" are examples of jazz&blues in its prime. Light up a cheap cigar, order a shot of bootleg gin, and stare at that lady standing in the corner as you listen to the haunting beauty of Jelly-Roll Mortons' keyboard on the 1926 version of the St. Louis Levee Bands "Soap Suds". If you love traditonal jazz& blues spend 72 minutes of the best years with "Jazz in St. Louis 1924-1927"."
