AllMusic Review by

This is the first of several Dawn Club LPs documenting the 1953-54 version of Kid Ory's Creole Jazz Band. Consisting of two broadcasts, this set features trombonist Ory, cornetist Teddy Buckner and clarinetist Joe Darensbourg (along with a fine rhythm section) joyfully jamming on a variety of dixieland standards. One song on each broadcast features the duet of pianist Meade Lux Lewis and drummer Smoky Stover. It's recommended for New Orleans jazz collectors.
