AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

This sampler LP from the late '50s has 11 strong Dixieland performances from six different all-star groups. Such major players as trombonists Jack Teagarden, Tyree Glenn and Vic Dickenson, tenorman Bud Freeman, clarinetists Edmond Hall and Tony Parenti and trumpeters Jimmy McPartland, Red Allen, Buck Clayton and Wild Bill Davison all take fine solos. Most of these performances are not currently available on CD and this rewarding album will not be easy to find.
