AllMusic Review by

ASV/Living Era has done many favors to fans of classic jazz, often compiling great work from the best bands but also devoting single volumes to the far-flung sides of excellent instrumentalists who recorded with several bands in dozens of different settings -- as was often the case at the time. Georg Brunis, New Orleans legend and king of the tailgate trombone, gets his due with Tin Roof Blues, a perfect volume of recordings that sprinkles ten sides from his own band amongst his seminal work in the New Orleans Rhythm Kings, as well as bands led by Ted Lewis, Muggsy Spanier, Louis Prima, and Wild Bill Davison. Beginning with his feature on NORK's "Tin Roof Blues," Brunis shines on these 1923-1946 recordings, a solid picture at the early career of one of Dixieland's finest trombone players.
