Dodds performed and recorded with some of the most famous musicians of the time--King Oliver, Kid Ory, Bunk Johnson, Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, and Sidney Bechet, among others--and his recollections of these men and the music they created add much to our knowledge of the history of jazz. Dodds also talks about his own style and philosophy of music, revealing himself as a serious and dedicated artist who placed a high value on craftsmanship, versatility, and originality and whose love of the world of jazz never waned.
