I grew up with this as a teen and I still love it. These were to players I idolized and wished that I could play like them. The sound may be a bit dated but they really do get my blood going.

By Jazzman on July 10, 2014
Format: Audio CD
Eddie Condon was one of the great hustlers in Jazz. He and Red Nichols always managed to find record dates even during the worst of times. The fact that he was totally colorblind and eagerly sought out the services of Black musicians won him not only the respect of the Black community, but earned him the friendship of some of the best players of their era. Condon was the anti-bop avatar. He was appalled by what he felt were the excesses of the Bop players and big Progressive Jazz bands like Kenton, Gillespie, and Eckstine. His roots in trad jazz ran deep. From his early exposure to the 20's giants like Armstrong, Noone, and Oliver, he became a charter member of the Chicago school and never lost his love for the free-wheeling collective drive of small group jazz. This double CD is one of 12 sets released by Jazzology of the 1944-45 Town Hall Concerts which were broadcast weekly as sustaining programs on the NBC Blue network. They were unsponsored because Condon refused to exclude musicians of color in the concert lineups. The broadcasts were retransmitted by the Armed Forces Radio Network to the European and Pacific Theaters for the entertainment of the military personnel. The concerts were 30 minutes in length and although they were mc'd, Condon did virtually all of the introductions of the songs and the musicians involved along with asides to his fellow players on occasion. As to the content- All 12 of these CD's are examples of small group trad jazz at its best. The roster of musicians is a who's who of first call players. Russell, Mole, Kaminsky, Hackett, Dorsey, Wettling, "Lips' Page - the list goes on and on. The performances are live and thus there is the occasional rare "clam" in some of the cuts, announcements related to the fighting fronts etc., but the music is tremendous.Read more ›
