For many, Eddie Condon's. Name is synonymous with swing-infused Chicago-style Dixieland, which he embodied in almost every way. These 8 CDs feature groups led by players associated with Eddie Condon and, although he only.Performs on a handful of the tracks, his spirit is prevalent, and the collection is unified not only by style but also by something more exquisite as well. As is common with the Mosaic box sets, there is a commitment to quality recording that often begins with long-forgotten original masters. As for the music, it is first-rate of the genre - hard-swinging, melodic, freewheeling Dixie, updated somewhat to mid-20th century standards, with cream-of-the-crop soloists. Recorded originally on 78s, 45s, and 10" and 12" LPs, the list of groups on these full-length CDs is staggering in breadth and quality. From Bud Freeman & His Famous Chicagoans. To The Rampart Street Paraders.
George Wettling, Matty Matlock, Jimmy McPartland, Dick Cary, Billy Butterfield and more. There is a wealth of extraordinary music here waiting to be enjoyed.
