The Town Hall Concerts, Vol. 9

The Town Hall Concerts, Vol. 9

by Eddie Condon



Eddie Condon certainly had good taste in musicians. On his legendary Town Hall Concert series (a regular weekly half-hour radio program reissued by Jazzology on double CDs), he showcased some of the very best New Orleans and Chicago-style players, musicians who in some cases were quite happy to get away from their regular gigs within the confines of a big band and get a rare chance to stretch out. Volume 9 has four half-hour shows and the usual remarkable lineup of players: trumpeters Billy Butterfield, Wild Bill Davison (the latter making his debut on the show), Max Kaminsky and Muggsy Spanier, trombonists Tommy Dorsey and Lou McGarity, Sidney Bechet on soprano, baritonist Ernie Caceres, clarinetists Pee Wee Russell, Edmond Hall, Joe Marsala and Woody Herman, pianists Earl Hines, Dick Cary, Gene Schroeder and Jess Stacy, bassist Sid Weiss, drummer George Wettling and singers Red McKenzie and Lee Wiley. The music lives up to its potential.
