  • In 1949, Jimmy Dorsey formed his Original Dorseyland Jazz Band, a Dixieland combo taken from the personnel of his big band. While Dorsey had been emphasizing his alto playing since the late '30s and became famous for his pop hits, the Dorseyland band featured no-nonsense and often hyperactive trad jazz. The music on this 1998 CD, some of which had been put out earlier on an obscure British Jazz House LP, is taken from two full-length radio broadcasts. Dorsey (on clarinet except for some alto on "Sweet Lorraine") is matched with the underrated but hot trumpet of Charlie Teagarden, either Bud Hackman or Cutty Cutshall on trombone, Frank Mayne or Buddy Bardach on tenor, Al Waslohn or Bob Carter on piano, bassist Bill Lallotte, and either Ray Bauduc or Karl Kiffe on drums. In addition, Pat O'Connor has a couple vocals, including "Charley My Boy," in which she is assisted by Teagarden. The repertoire is chiefly comprised of warhorses, but Dorsey and his men play with such spirit and drive that this is very easy music to enjoy. It is as if Dorsey was finally liberated from his role as a big-band leader and could at last devote his energy completely to jamming among near-equals. Easily recommended to Dixieland fans. ~ Scott Yanow
