After leaving Banu Gibson's band, trumpeter Duke Heitger began working regularly on a steamship in New Orleans. This CD features his band performing a variety of 1920s tunes with a few standards thrown in.

Highlights include "Roll On, Mississippi, Roll On," "Steamboat Stomp," "Tia Juana," "St. Louis Shuffle," and "California, Here I Come." This CD is easily recommended to Dixieland and trad fans.
