Reviews of This Recording

I like this CD. It makes me smile and tap my feel (always on the off-beat.) These are some of Kid Ory’s swinging dance sessions, and they make it all sound so easy. Recorded in 1956-7 Ory chose a tasty bunch of musos who not only swing infectiously, but have cutting edge that creates heat, and , with the customary two-bar flares at the end of each solo, gives the whole thing a kick.
