Overview

Recently released for the first time, this is the first of two volumes that documents Kid Ory's 1947 band live during a gig. Recorded without the knowledge of the musicians (which include trombonist Ory, trumpeter Mutt Carey and clarinetist Joe Darensbourg), most of the music they played on that particular evening is on these CDs. The first volume is the weaker of the two for the New Orleans jazz band is saddled with requests for swing standards that do not fit their style that well; Ory grudgingly ran through 13 of these tunes as quickly as possible before playing six songs that fit better in his band's repertoire. The music has its moments but the recording quality is just so-so and it takes awhile for Mutt Carey to get warmed up. The second volume is much better.
