Sugar Blues: A Tribute to Joseph "King" Oliver

For this Stomp Off project, cornetist Christ Tyle gathered together an octet (also including cornetist Leon Oakley, trombonist John Gill, clarinetist Mike Baird and pianist Steve Pistorius) for a tribute to King Oliver. Not all of the selections were originally recorded by Oliver (including "Bugle Call Rag," "Wolverine Blues," "Maryland My Maryland," "The Pearls" and "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles") but they were all believed to have been played by Oliver's Creole Jazz Band. Certainly the sound of Chris Tyle's Silver Leaf Jazz Band is reminiscent of both Oliver's outfit and his main follower of the 1940s, Lu Watters's Yerba Buena Jazz Band. The music is well-played and easily recommended to fans of early New Orleans jazz.
