This LP from the collectors IAJRC label has 16 selections featuring clarinetist Jimmie Noone. The performances are programmed in chronological order and most of the recordings are lesser-known. All but the first two and the last four are from 1929-31 and highlights include the 1929 version of "Apex Blues," "That Rhythm Man," "Three Little Words" and "Shine." All of this music has since been reissued on CD but, taken as a sampler, this is a well-conceived introduction to the work of the fine New Orleans clarinetist.
