Reviews of This Recording

Cadence Magazine - U.S.A.
What trombonist Wilbur DeParis and his Rampart Street Ramblers have going for them is a bright New Orleans style make-up, thanks largely to the presence of ace banjoist Eddie Gibbs whose assertive rhythms quicken every number but two - on which he's replaced by the more subdued Danny Barker. Wilbur DeParis is an excellent ensemble player, as is his trumpet-playing brother, Sidney, but the groups star soloist is clarinetist Omer Simeon with pianist Don Kirkpatrick only a stride or so behind. For a style of music that's considered by many to be passé, DeParis and his colleagues manage to generate an ample supply of warmth and enthusiasm. Wherever they are now, they may still be listening for a well-earned round of applause. - Jack Bowers
