Description by OLDIES.com:

Eddie Condon's goal with "Midnight In Moscow" was to record Dixieland-flavored versions of such "international" pieces as "Meadowlands," "Loch Lomond," "La Vie En Rose" and "The Sheik Of Araby" with a crew including Bobby Hackett on trumpet, Peanuts Hucko on clarinet, Lou McGarity on trombone, Dick Cary on piano, Jack Lesberg on bass and Buzzy Lutin on drums. "The Roaring Twenties" was longtime Condon drummer George Wettling's idea - the goal being to "celebrate the musicians who were...the principal influences on jazz in the twenties." On it, he and Condon are joined by the likes of Wild Bill Dickenson, Billy Butterfield, Cutty Cutshall, Bob Wilbur, Gene Schroeder and Leonard Gaskin.

Product Description:

2 LPs on 1 CD: MIDNIGHT IN MOSCOW (1962)/THE ROARING TWENTIES (1957).
Personnel: Eddie Condon (guitar); Billy Butterfield, Bobby Hackett (trumpet); Wild Bill Davison (cornet); Vic Dickenson, Cutty Cutshall, Lou McGarity (trombone); Bob Wilbur, Peanuts Hucko (clarinet); Dick Cary (alto horn, piano); Gene Schroeder (piano); Leonard Gaskin, Jack Lesberg (bass); George Wettling, Buzzy Drootin (drums).
A pair of dates from Eddie Condon & His All-Stars make up this Collectables two-fer. Both are quasi-concept albums, the first (1962's Midnight in Moscow) a swing-around-the-world session prompted by Kenny Ball's surprise hit with the title song one year earlier. The lineup includes trumpeter Bobby Hackett, pianist Dick Cary, Peanuts Hucko on clarinet, and Lou McGarity on trombone; Hucko, especially, does some great work during the opener, "Meadowland," and a stately version of "Londonderry Air." The second LP included on the program, 1957's The Roaring Twenties, salutes a host of jazz luminaries of the pre-swing era, from Lee Wiley and Turk Murphy to Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong. Condon -- appearing with cornetist Wild Bill Davison, drummer George Wettling, clarinetist Bob Wilber, bassist Leonard Gaskin, and trombone player Vic Dickenson -- illustrates perfectly how much fun jazz was before it took itself seriously, jamming on "Minor Drag," "That's a Plenty," and ten other tunes. ~ John Bush
