AllMusic Review by

This interesting quintet set from the early days of Jazzology features the fine cornetist Johnny Wiggs, clarinetist Raymond Burke, pianist Art Hodes, guitarist Dr. Edmond Souchon and drummer Freddie Moore. Although a bass would have been helpful, the group holds together quite well on a variety of fairly basic chord changes, many of them blues-based. Good New Orleans jazz that is long overdue to be reissued on CD.
