AllMusic Review by

This CD (one of six Pickwick releases taken from the Black & White catalogue of the mid-'40s) is the only one not to list the exact personnel and recording dates. The performances are in the Dixieland vein and include difficult-to-trace sessions by Eddie Condon, clarinetist Matty Matlock (with a septet including tenor-saxophonist Eddie Miller and trumpeter Dick Cathcart) and a mid-'40s version of Red Nichols's Five Pennies. The music is enjoyable enough although not as essential as the other CDs in the valuable series.
