Overview

Although trombonist Turk Murphy had less than a year to live at the time of this concert (from the Concord Jazz Festival), he is still in prime form on this CD. Murphy's band also includes cornetist Bob Schulz, Lynn Zimmer on clarinet on soprano, pianist Ray Skjelbred, John Gill on banjo and Bill Carroll on tuba, and they romp through a variety of mostly fresh material, including "High Society," "Perdido Street Blues," "Weather Bird Rag" and "Oriental Strut." Gill has an odd country-blues vocal on "Walkin' the Blues Away," while Murphy sings on two songs and Schulz sounds quite strong during his two vocals. But it is the joyous ensembles that make this Dixieland set of greatest interest.
