Overview

Far superior to the first volume, this CD continues the documentation of a 1947 gig for Kid Ory's Creole Jazz Band. At the time the trombonist's group included trumpeter Mutt Carey (who would leave the band right after this engagement ended) and clarinetist Joe Darensbourg. This group seemed to improve with each song so, by the second half of the night, they were in hot form. The recording quality varies but is listenable (with the crowd becoming more enthusiastic and probably drunker as the night progressed). The band runs through some of their favorite tunes, including "Do What Ory Said," "Eh, La Bas," "1919 March," "High Society" and "Oh! Didn't He Ramble." Ory fans are advised to pick this one up.
