A group come up with for a particular recording task, Dick Cary & His Dixieland Doodlers exceeded all targets, especially those encircling this album they delivered. Something from the late-decade boomlet in Dixieland music, in conjunction with Columbia Information’ ongoing achievement using its Mitch Miller singalong albums, this group was likely to record a lighthearted, fluffy agglomeration of well-known Dixieland-related nostalgia music. Rather, Dick Cary taken in such youthful jazzers as Kenny Davern on clarinet and Dick Welstood on piano, as well as the flashy veteran Harry DeVito on trombone. All of those other lineup was done by Leroy Parkins on clarinet and sax, Lee Blair on banjo, Charlie Parker alumnus Tommy Potter playing bass, and Cliff Leeman for the drums. The ensuing record provided better playing and even more inventive solos than anyone could possess expected, especially provided the project from Columbia — this is prime exemplory case of a music group that transcended the reason that they’d been arranged, and it’s unlucky they never surely got to execute a second album.
