  • Edward 'Kid' Ory - trombone, leader
  • Alvin Alcorn - trumpet
  • Phil Gomez - clarinet
  • Lionel Reason - piano
  • Julian Davidson - guitar
  • Wellman Braud - bass
  • Minor Hall - drums

One of trombonist Kid Ory's greatest recordings, this consistently exciting CD features trumpeter Alvin Alcorn, clarinetist Phil Gomez, and a strong rhythm section that includes bassist Wellman Braud and Ory's longtime drummer, Minor Hall. These versions of "Mahogany Hall Stomp," "There'll Be Some Changes Made," "At the Jazz Band Ball," and "Shine" are all gems, giving listeners some of the very best in New Orleans jazz and showing that the music need not be played haltingly by over-the-hill musicians; one can capture its spirit and joy without sacrificing musicianship. Every jazz collection should have this music.
