Liner Note Author: George H. Buck, Jr.
Recording information: New Orleans, LA (05/14/1945-05/18/1945).
This CD starts off with a potentially very interesting session, the first-ever recording of a New Orleans brass band. Bunk Johnson heads a group consisting of two trumpeters (the other is Kid Shots Madison), trombonist Jim Robinson, George Lewis on the eerie E flat clarinet, Isidore Barbarin on alto horn, the baritone horn of Adolphe Alexander, Joe Clark on bass horn, Baby Dodds on snare drum, and Lawrence Marrero on bass drum. Unfortunately, the band (particularly Lewis) is generally out of tune, which -- despite the power and sincerity of the music -- reduces the effectiveness of the recording. The second half of the disc has more conventional performances by Bunk, Lewis, and Robinson in a spirited New Orleans jazz sextet, playing numbers such as "Runnin' Wild," "Kentucky Home," and "The Sheik of Araby." ~ Scott Yanow
