All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Trumpeter Ken Colyer's influential New Orleans-style bands of the 1950s are featured on this British CD. The 21 performances are taken from five live performances taped for the BBC.

The recording quality varies from date to date, as do the musicians' intonations they are usually in tune.
