"This is a companion with Vol. 1, which are reissues of the Scoby hits on Good Time Jazz LPs. Scoby carried on the San Francisco revival of traditional jazz started by Lu Watters, kept going by Turk Murphy. Scoby was a top trumpet and had great Frisco musicians working with him. The band became popular because of Clancy Hayes vocals, and this CD has some wonderful Hayes vocals. It's a shame that recordings in those days were kept to about 3 minutes each tune, as it would be great to hear more of the musicians doing solo work. This is a must for your trad jazz collection."

"Although the music was great, I am not much for vocals with Dixieland music. Do you have any Scobey music without the v ocals?"
