There was something special about the Crescent City, with its tropical carnival atmosphere and its bubbling mixture of cultures, that made it surely the most musical city in the New World – and its jazzmen, from the nigh-legendary Buddy Bolden to today’s Wynton Marsalis, some of the most influential. The work of three of New Orleans’ biggest names, Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton and King Oliver, is already well documented in the JSP catalogue (see below). This collection concerns itself with their compatriots and contemporaries, presenting 101 historic recordings by numerous hot ensembles featuring a host of New Orleans’ finest, including Oscar ‘Papa’ Celestin, Louis Dumaine, Lee Collins, Armand Piron, Freddie Keppard and Johnny Dodds. Customary JSP remastering and packaging with an authoritative essay by Keith Briggs.
