I'm leaving for a much-needed vacay in a couple hours, so this may be the only post for a couple of days. I'll return. ...eventually.
This is pure Dixieland jazz at its best. I found a couple of these Atlantic records "Jazz at Preservation Hall" series and I don't know much about them except that they obviously feature some of the original heroes of New Orleans' jazz. Everyone pictured is old, crusty, and usually standing in their front yard proudly holding their instrument.
While I'm not the biggest Dixieland guy, I have to guess that these are a couple of records worth holding onto.
