AllMusic Review by

The 11th and final Jazzology set that documents all of Eddie Condon's legendary Town Hall concerts of 1944-45 is a three-CD release. In addition to having five complete shows, there are a couple of briefer demo programs that were never aired before. Although not containing as many heights (or guest artists) as previous programs, there is plenty of exciting "Americondon" music to be heard on the final few of his 46 Town Hall concerts. Among the many top players are trumpeters Max Kaminsky, Billy Butterfield and Muggsy Spanier, trombonists Lou McGarity, Miff Mole and Vernon Brown, clarinetists Pee Wee Russell and Edmond Hall, baritonist Ernie Caceres, pianists Jess Stacy, Joe Bushkin and Gene Scroeder, drummers George Wettling and Big Sid Catlett and singers Red McKenzie and Lee Wiley. Trad jazz fans are well advised to pick up this entire series (which numbers 23 CDs).
