Editorial Reviews

Jazz clarinetist Albert Nicholas played with King Oliver and Jelly Roll Morton in the 1920s, Louis Armstrong in the '30s and was a major figure in the traditional jazz revival in New York in the '40s. Pianist Art Hodes was also on the scene in the '20s and recorded for numerous labels including many successful sides with Nicholas for Blue Note in the '40s. In a review of the original LP of this 1959 session Brian Rust said ''One is left without any doubt about Nicholas being far and away the greatest living jazz clarinetist.'' - The Gramophone. Hodes ''plays with a darting vivacity which adds a stimulating sense of excitement to even the more mellow easygoing pieces.'' - High Fidelity Magazine.

Format: Audio CD
I'm not exactly sure if Nicholas is considered by many a grade "A" player,but he's my favorite! Maybe that's an unlikely choice but if you listen to this album you start start to see things my way. His playing on "Digga Digga Do" is worth the price of the cd itself. Art Hodes does some pretty amazing things also! Another great track to listen to is "Lover Come Back To Me". Anyone familiar with the song knows it's usually performed as a ballad but here they swing from beginning to end! This allows some great solos by the entire quartet. If you like this album another great one to listen to is "All Star Stompers". This has Nicholas in the more traditional New Orleans setup(Trumpet,Trombone,Guitar..ect) If you love good jazz and want to hear some great clarinet playing..A MUST!
