The Firehouse Five Plus Two Story

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This double CD reissues the first three LPs by the Firehouse Five Plus Two, a very popular Dixieland group in the 1950s. In addition to trombonist Ward Kimball who occasionally lets loose on a siren, the main soloists are generally trumpeter Danny Alguire and either Clarke Mallery, Tom Sharpsteen, or George Probert on clarinet. The spirited jamming mixes together standards, a few obscurities, and an occasional original including "Firehouse Stomp," "Fireman's Lament," and "Firechief Rag". Although not exactly innovative, the music is quite fun and easily recommended to Dixieland fans.
