Album Review

This is one of clarinetist Barney Bigard's best recordings of his later period. On four of the eight selections, he is well-featured on swing standards with a quartet who also includes the great pianist Art Hodes. The other four tracks are more in the Dixieland vein, with trumpeter Nappy Trottier and veteran trombonist George Brunis making the band a sextet. Throughout Bigard (whose tone was instantly recognizable) is the main star and in splendid form.
