AllMusic Review by

Recorded in Okinawa, Japan during an Asian tour, the music on this set is pure Dixieland. The great trombonist Jack Teagarden, heading a sextet with trumpeter Max Kaminsky, clarinetist Jerry Fuller and pianist Don Ewell, performs lively versions of nine Dixieland standards plus a blues. Everyone plays up to par and comes up with spirited statements on the familiar repertoire.
