AllMusic Review by

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.
