AllMusic Review by

This Jazzology LP has performances from five different overlapping groups that appeared at the 1982 Memphis Jazz Festival. Among the stars are cornetist Wild Bill Davison (making his lone appearance on "Struttin' With Some Barbeque" a typically spirited one), trombonist Jim Beebe, clarinetist Chuck Hedges (showcased on "After You've Gone"), trumpeter George Ryan, singer Sheri Connor (who has two vocals), bassist Milt Hinton and (on "Potato Head Blues" and "East St. Louis Toodle-oo") cornetist Jim Cullum's Happy Jazz Band. Excellent Dixieland.
