Trumpeter Kenny Ball was at the height of his popularity in the early 1960s, when he had a big hit in "Midnight in Moscow" and was an active participant in England's trad boom. He has managed to continue working since then, despite the change in musical trends, and this 1990 recording (reissued on a 1998 Jazzology CD) finds Ball playing Dixieland in prime form. Heading a fine septet which also includes trombonist John Bennett, clarinetist Andy Cooper, John Fenner on banjo, and guitar, pianist Hugh Ledigo, bassist John Benson, and drummer Ron Bowden, Ball takes many fine solos and shares occasional vocals with Cooper and Benson. Highlights of the superior set include "At the Jazz Band Ball," "Muskrat Ramble," "Ory's Creole Trombone," and "I Shall Not Be Moved." ~ Scott Yanow
