In addition, there are a couple of piano features "Black and White Rag" and "Maple Leaf Rag" for Bell with the rhythm section. Two numbers "Jumbuck Jamboree" and "Old Miss Rag" find the band expanding into an 11-piece orchestra. On "Mobile Bay," cornetist Rex Stewart sits in with the usual nonet. Other highlights include "Fidgety Feet," "Sobbin' Blues," "Irish Black Bottom," and "Big Chief Battle Axe." Fans of 1920s revival jazz and Dixieland should have a strong sampling of Graeme Bell's band, for this was one of the finest trad groups of the time period.
