Entertainment Reviews:

Down Beat - 3/97, p.47
3 Stars - (out of 5) - "...straight out of the Jack Teagarden and Eddie Condon tradition, when the music shed its banjos, tubas and press rolls and became a professionalized branch of small-band swing....The ensembles...possess all the easy, nicely rounded timbres of top swing virtuosos and don't try to reach into the mythic New Orleans past..."

This is a high-quality Dixieland/swing set recommended to lovers of classic jazz. The musicianship in Jim Beebe's group is quite high; the standards are given fresh interpretations, and there is plenty of variety. In addition to the leader's fluent trombone, the band features cornetist Connie Jones (who on ballads occasionally hints strongly at Wild Bill Davison), John Otto on clarinet and alto, the fine stride piansit Paul Asaro, bassist John Rany and drummer Johnie Faren. Singer Judi K. is a welcome addition on five numbers, including "Blue Prelude" and a spirited "This Joint Is Jumpin'." Other highlights include an upbeat "Chicago," "Bye & Bye" (which has a surprise "glee club" vocal from the group), Johnie Faren's feature on "Drummin' Man," and the Duke Ellington-associated title cut. This is a difficult release to resist, particularly for listeners who enjoy hearing three horns jamming together. ~ Scott Yanow
