Reviews of This Recording

What a superb anthology this is, and one of which the entire team at Upbeat should be proud.......Dodds moved there (Chicago) from New Orleans in 1920 and further honed his skills in the cabarets and clubs of the South Side into the sheer brilliance we hear on this CD. New Orleans Music
