Such jazz legends as Dick Wellstood, Alphonse 'Doc' Cheatham and George Duvivier and more back you up in this amazing collection of New York-style Dixieland standards. After the break-up of the big-band era around 1950, many of the finest 'swing' or mainstream players found themselves without an outlet for their abilities and took to playing 'Dixieland' in New York clubs such as Eddie Condon's and the Metropole. And so was born a new style of Dixieland jazz minus the banjos, tubas, steamboats and magnolias! It is this version we celebrate on this album.
This second volume in MMO's highly popular series of outstanding songs and themes selected for their beauty and ease of performance. An excellent practice album for the beginning, 1st, 2nd and 3rd-year trumpet player. Features beautiful piano accompaniments by Harriet Wingreen, staff pianist of the New York Philharmonic.
