This collection brings you some of the best
New Orleans jazz from both the past and
the present. The variety of sounds is
extraordinary ranging from the bluesy old
time piano and cornet duets of Billie and
DeDe Pierce to the joyful arrangements of
the New Orleans Ragtime Orchestra who
re-live the lilting rhythms of the turn of the
century ragtime era. You hear the powerful
improvised authentic ensemble sounds
of the Kid Thomas, George Lewis, Punch
Miller, and Kid Howard bands, the small
jazz ensemble of John Handy. the raunchy,
gutsy singing of Pamela Polland and the
delightful swing of the Golden Age Jazz
Band who carry on the New Orleans jazz
tradition on the West Coast.
