Banjoist Ted Shafer has long been a "keeper of the flame" for Dixieland jazz, staying true to its New Orleans roots without resorting to pompous formalism. Shafer's Jelly Roll Jazz Band generally plays music for relaxed good times, and this disc is no exception. While some of Shafer's other albums have mined less well-known songs, this NEW ORLEANS volume presents mostly chestnuts and classics from the Crescent City repertoire. The party ambiance flows with "Bourbon Street Parade" and "My Blue Heaven," and continues on for 70 minutes. The musicianship is, as usual, very fine and high-spirited.
