Although it has a wide range of styles and moods, each selection has much to offer. Highlights from the 25 performances include a charming Eva Taylor-Clarence Williams vocal-piano duet on "Baby Won't You Please Come Home"; Rube Bloom's virtuosic piano on "Spring Fever"; a forgotten Paul Whiteman recording "Love and Kisses" that has a fine Red Nichols cornet solo; a charming version of "I Get the Blues When It Rains" by the Fred Rich Orchestra with the Dorsey Brothers; one of Annette Hanshaw's more obscure recordings "Wasting My Love on You"; the Three Keys on "Oh by Jingo"; a hot number by the Claude Hopkins Orchestra "Washington Squabble"; and performances by Joe Venuti, a Mezz Mezzrow pickup group with some fine Bud Freeman tenor, and Don Redman & His Orchestra. Vintage jazz collectors will certainly enjoy this well-conceived offering, which also has excellent liner notes from Conaty.
