Really "swings" on a true jazz level...
Joe Anthony (a.k.a. JAG 1) | Massachusetts, USA | 09/29/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Even though I have always been a jazz fanatic, the "Dixieland" variety is something that, for me, has always been of limited interest. I was curious to hear this CD because I love the slide trombone and I heard that Kid Ory was one of the great jazz trobonists. This music transcends the Dixieland genre and really "swings" on a true jazz level that touches upon "blues" and the range of emotions that is jazz. The "Mahogany Hall Stomp" and "Snag It" really seem to underscore what I am talking about.

Though I know next to nothing else about Kid Ory, this is one of my favorite and most played jazz CDs."
The Real Thing

"This recording from late 1955 features an authentic 7 piece New-Orleans style band led by trombonist Kid Ory. The Legendary "Kid," now 70 years old (but maybe playing as well as ever), was a bandleader in the early days of jazz and played as a sideman with King Oliver, Louis Armstrong (including on the Hot 5 and 7 recordings), Jelly Roll Morton, and others. Ory retired in the 1930s during the heyday of the swing era, but made a comeback in the 1940s, helping to re-popularize the great New Orleans tradition.

These are talented musicians--besides Ory, trumpeter Alvin Alcorn is especially impressive on the disc. The enjoyable set was well-recorded and sounds mighty fine on this Good Times Jazz (Fantasy Studio) CD. The liner notes include a recipe for Creole Red Beans and Rice.
