Director: W.W. Watson.
This set features some of Joe "King" Oliver's later 1930 recordings for the Victor Talking Machine Company. Though in the early '20s Oliver had employed artists of the caliber of the trumpeter Louis Armstrong and the clarinetist and saxophonist Johnny Dodds, by the turn of the decade these performers were long gone, and the bandleader was suffering from a painful gum disease which made stand-ins necessary for most of his solos. However, his acumen in choosing talented musicians is still very much apparent in the performances of such figures as the pianist James P. Johnson and the trumpeters Bubber Miley and Henry "Red" Allen. Highlights include the classic "St. James Infirmary" and a spirited version of "Frankie and Johnny."
