AllMusic Review by

The Original Dixieland Jazz Band was the first jazz group to record. Although their two earliest titles for Columbia ("Darktown Strutters Ball" and "Indiana") have not been reissued in a long time, all of the ODJB's output for Victor (including "Livery Stable Blues," the first jazz recording ever released) is on this definitive CD. This colorful group, which stuck exclusively to ensembles with no solos, introduced such standard tunes as "Original Dixieland One Step," "At the Jazz Band," "Fidgety Feet," "Sensation," "Clarinet Marmalade," "Margie," "Jazz Me Blues," "Royal Garden Blues," and "Tiger Rag," all of which are included on this release. It's an essential acquisition for any serious jazz library.
