Reviews of This Recording

This is a good CD. The music played by both bands is straightforward and well played New Orleans style jass and very likeable. It may be that this is some of the best of Mac Duncan's playing on record.
John Keen - Just Jazz and Cadence Magazines

Here Duncan teams up with trumpeter Sonny Morris to front a well-organised and lively group. Special mention should be made of the rhythm section who show unusually good control at slower tempos, as on the outstanding Yellow Dog Blues.
