At Lenfant's Lounge Review

by Scott Yanow

Volume eight in Storyville's Sounds of New Orleans, this CD features the spirited Dixieland sextet of trumpeter Sharkey Bonano (which includes trombonist Jack Delaney, clarinetist Bujie Centobie, pianist Stanley Mendelsohn, bassist Arnold Loyacano and drummer Abbie Brunies) along with guest singer Lizzie Miles. The performances are taken from three radio broadcasts and feature such typical Dixieland songs as "Tin Roof Blues," "High Society," "The Saints" and "Weary Blues" along with Bonano's "North Rampart Street Parade" and "She's Crying for Me" among others. Fun music that dixieland fans should like.
