The Dr. Jazz Series, Vol. 5

The Dr. Jazz Series, Vol. 5

by Eddie Condon

CD(Spanish Import)


The Doctor Jazz radio series (which was on from Dec. 1950 to June 1952) presented for a half-hour each week some of the finest Dixieland then being performed regularly in New York City. This particular CD features Eddie Condon's freewheeling band with consistently heated solos taken by cornetist Wild Bill Davison, trombonist Cutty Cutshall, clarinetist Edmond Hall and either Gene Schroeder or Ralph Sutton on piano. Together they romp through a variety of veteran standards and a ballad medley. The excellent programming on this Storville disc (which actually draws its material from eight different broadcasts) makes the results sound like a complete show. Chicago jazz and Eddie Condon fans are advised not only to acquire this CD but to investigate the entire series from this Danish import label.
