What the critics say:
"Issuing a CD by your Dixieland Band in this century seems a
brave act—so many know nothing of the heights reached within this
genre, others are suspicious of clichés accreted over eighty years.
(This) has its virtues: a few surprises breaking through the
expected repertoire ('Delta' and 'Million Dollars'), some neatly arranged
passages, occasional visits to 'modernism,' as in Harrison’s soaring Severinsen range. Everyone plays competently and beyond...from what I have seen at recent 'traditional' Jazz
festivals, the Harrison band would be a solid attraction."
