Both of these sessions are from the Atlantic vaults and have been paired up and reissued on CD by Collectables. Along with their respective bands, both Paul Barbarin and Chris Barber provide authentic New Orleans jazz performed at Preservation Hall in 1963. While these musicians were getting on in age, that didn't stop them from vigorous playing. This is authentic Crescent City jazz, played by some of the original practitioners, and it shows, especially in the traditional tunes "Slide Frog Slide," "Nobody Knows the Way I Feel This Morning," and "Preservation Blues." On the other hand, trombonist Chris Barber and his band from England attempt Dixieland, and compared to the previously mentioned music, his session is less gritty, bordering at times on corny with tunes like "Bill Bailey," "Diga Diga Doo," and "Everybody Loves My Baby." ~ Al Campbell
