Kid Ory was one of the key figures of early jazz, working with King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton and Louis Armstrong, originating the “tailgate” style of trombone playing, and he also led the Dixieland revival on the west coast in the ‘40s and ‘50s. San Francisco was a hotbed of ‘live’ jazz during the 1950s, and alongside the cool West Coast jazz of that decade the Dixieland revival was in full swing in the city’s clubs, nowhere more so than at Club Hangover. Every Saturday, a half-hour ‘live’ broadcast from the club went out on local radio station KCBS. This collection comprises recordings of four of these broadcasts, two previously unreleased in any form and two only previously released on LP, and features four of the broadcasts made by Kid Ory, who played several seasons there in 1954. These excellent quality recordings of the shows are presented unedited, complete with links by announcer Bob Guerner. It’s highly entertaining, a fine showcase for one of the great instrumentalists and innovators of his era, and a must for enthusiasts of the genre. Featured musicians: Kid Ory (trombone), Alvin Alcorn (tp) Albert Burbank (cl), Don Ewell (p), Ed Garland (b) and Minor ‘Ram’ Hall (dr), with intermission piano solo pianist Jesse Tiny Crump.
