Editorial Reviews

Mezz Mezzrow is one of Jazz musics most interesting characters, and was responsible for putting together many of the greatest sessions in Jazz history. This concert, recorded January 1st 1947, was put on to celebrate the release of his autobiography, Really The Blues, and to help with the festivities Mezzrow enlisted many of the greatest purveyors of traditional Jazz the world has ever known. Most notably Sidney Bechet aided the performance with his characteristically amazing soprano sax work, and Muggsy Spanier blew his cornet as good as anyone could ever be expected to! Also featured are the legendary Sammy Price tickling the ivories, long time associate Sandy Williams on trombone, the incomparable Wellman Braud on bass, and the widely influential Baby Dodds finishing off the band on drums. In addition to the main band Mezz was joined by long time friends (and recording artists on Mezzs own King Jazz label) Coot Grant and Kid Wilson who present a very playful version of their own song You Can t Do That To Me. Although not of the highest audio fidelity, these rare recordings offer a great insight into the New York scene at the time. So sit back and enjoy this rare glimpse into the past, with these Jazz pioneers practicing their craft as only they could.
