AllMusic Review by

Original Memphis Five includes nine tracks by the pioneering jazz quintet, plus additional tracks from related groups like (Phil) Napoleon's Emperors and the Cotton Pickers. Though there are other collections with more tracks devoted to the group itself, here's an excellent way to span the best output of three similar bands.
