Good for What Ails Ya Review

by Scott Yanow

This Dixielandish session features the ageless trumpeter Doc Cheatham (who was then 71 and still improving) in a sextet with trombonist Gene "Mighty Flea" Conners, altoist Ted Buckner, pianist Sammy Price, bassist Carl Pruitt and drummer J.C. Heard on eight veteran standards. It is great fun to hear these classic players jam on this LP on such tunes as "Rosetta," "What Can I Say Dear After I Say I'm Sorry?" and "Rose Room."
