AllMusic Review by

This somewhat obscure LP from the collector's Jazzology label features the 1956 version of Eddie Condon's band, a septet starring the great cornetist Wild Bill Davison, trombonist Cutty Cutshall and clarinetist Bob Wilber. Nothing all that surprising occurs, other than a four-song ballad medley, but these freewheeling performances (the best are "At the Jazz Band Ball," "High Society" and Wild Bill's feature on "I Can't Give You Anything But Love") will be enjoyed by Dixieland fans.
