Around the time that the Dukes of Dixieland recorded the Now Hear This album for Columbia (and probably with the same personnel), they performed the radio transcriptions heard in this 1990 CD for armed services shows. Some of the selections ("Blue Turning Gray Over You," "My Inspiration," "Mood Indigo," "When You're Smiling" and "I'm Coming Virginia") are interpreted in similar versions to the Columbia record although naturally the solos are different. The band (Frank Assunto on trumpet and four personable vocals, trombonist Fred Assunto, clarinetist Jerry Fuller, Jac Assunto on banjo and second trombone, pianist Gene Schroeder and probably guitarist Herb Ellis, bassist Jim Atlas and drummer Charlie Lodice) was in top form during the era. These renditions tend to be a little briefer than their studio counterparts but plenty of fire is expressed on such numbers as "South Rampart Street Parade," "Down in Honky Tonk Town," "Slide, Frog, Slide" (a feature for the two trombonists) and even "Hey, Look Me Over." Dukes of Dixieland fans will want this rarity. ~ Scott Yanow
