AllMusic Review by

Recorded as a fundraiser for Friends in Need, an organization working to provide health care equipment for people with serious diseases, this CD (released through Arbors) has some heated Dixieland and swing from a septet featuring trombonist Dan Barrett, trumpeter Randy Sandke, clarinetist Chuck Hedges, Rick Fay on tenor and soprano, and pianist Ralph Sutton; the final four of the 15 selections are by a sextet led by trumpeter Dick Gable. The music is quite joyous and easily recommended to fans of classic jazz.
