AllMusic Review by

Two unrelated broadcasts are brought together for this LP by the collector's label Jazz Archives. Cornetist Muggsy Spanier is heard playing exuberant New Orleans-styled solos with Ben Pollack's swing band of 1937 and soprano great Sidney Bechet appears with a Dixieland quintet in 1953 that also features trumpeter Marty Marsala. Fans of these musicians should search for this one.
