Performer Notes
  • To celebrate the legacy of New Orleans, and the Jazz Crusade label in general, trombonist/producer Big Bill Bissonnette put together a two-CD set of highlights from his catalog. The first CD is titled "New Orleans Jazz" while the second focuses on "Hymns & Blues." The earliest selection is a broadcast from 1938 of Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, and Jack Teagarden teaming up for "Tiger Rag." There is a performance by the Wilbur DeParis band in the '50s and a few selections from the '60s, but otherwise the music dates from the '80s and '90s. Although New Orleans Reborn is a sampler, it's is a particularly well-conceived reissue without a dull selection among all 34 of them, showing that traditional New Orleans jazz is still very much alive today. The only minus to this set is that the personnel listings (which are only partly included above) are microscopic and will be impossible for many to read; plus the recording dates are missing. But musically, there is a great deal of excitement to be heard, and even many of the hymns are swung hard. Recommended. ~ Scott Yanow
