Overview

Five years after their previous recording, the Firehouse Five Plus Two came together for one last record date, celebrating their 20th anniversary as a group. This CD reissue has two numbers from 1966 ("Mame" and "Winchester Cathedral"), but is otherwise from 1969. Rather than emphasizing standards (only "High Society" qualifies as a true dixieland warhorse), the group chose to play more offbeat material, including jazz pop hits such as "Mame," "Hello Dolly," "Midnight In Moscow" and "Stranger on the Shore." For the only time, the frontline had two trumpets (Danny Alguire and Don Kinch) in addition to the group's leader, Ward Kimball, on trombone and George Probert on soprano, but the band's sound was unchanged. It was only fitting that since the Firehouse Five Plus Two's first record launched the Good Time Jazz label, its final set was the last release by the original label.
