The group romps on such numbers as "Eccentric," "Hotter Than That," "Sensation," "China Boy," and "California Here I Come." In addition, Nicholas is showcased on "Dardanella," soprano saxophonist Sidney Bechet guests on "Love for Sale," and veteran blues singer Bertha "Chippie" Hill is featured on two numbers. The August 9 and 16 shows are unique in the This Is Jazz discography in that announcer-writer Blesh took the show to California for two weeks. On August 9, Kid Ory's Creole Jazz Band (with trumpeter Andrew Blakeney and clarinetist Joe Darensbourg) was featured, while the August 16 edition had Lu Watters & the Yerba Buena Jazz Band. So this two-fer is valuable not only for covering the This Is Jazz radio series but also for giving listeners an overview of three important ensembles performing 1947 trad jazz.
