Joe Oliver played cornet in Kid Ory's band when the trombonist declared him "King" of the New Orleans horn players, and Oliver took the title with him when bassist Bill Johnson invited him north to Chicago in 1919. Oliver assumed leadership of the band as it gradually took on its ultimate form with clarinetist Johnny Dodds, his brother Baby on drums, trombonist Honore Dutrey, and then its crowning touch, Oliver's young friend Louis Armstrong, arriving from New Orleans in 1922. Playing music that is at once complex and joyous, the Creole Jazz Band combines virtuosic breaks and solos with a tight blend of improvised and rehearsed ensembles, presenting a constantly shifting, delightful palette of fresh musical combinations.

"Louis Armstrong è il jazz", così esordisce Enrico Rava nella prefazione a questa autobiografia del grande musicista americano. E insieme al jazz Armstrong è cresciuto nei bassifondi di quella città leggendaria che era la New Orleans d'inizio Novecento, quando le brass band si sfidavano a duelli musicali per le strade, e durante i funerali si potevano ascoltare le marce e i primi ragtime suonati da Kid Ory e King Oliver. La prima volta che Satchmo suona la tromba è in riformatorio, quando è ancora un bambino, e da allora lo strumento non lo abbandona più: anche quando di giorno Louis vende carbone e scarica caschi di banane, la tromba sarà lì ad attendere di essere suonata, la sera, per un pubblico di prostitute, magnaccia e giocatori d'azzardo.

Kid Ory was one of the great New Orleans pioneers, an early trombonist who virtually defined the "tailgate" style (using his horn to play rhythmic bass lines in the front line behind the trumpet and clarinet) and who was fortunate enough to last through the lean years so he could make a major comeback in the mid-'40s. Originally a banjoist, Ory soon switched to trombone and by 1911 was leading a popular band in New Orleans. Among his trumpeters during the next eight years were Mutt Carey, King Oliver and a young Louis Armstrong and his clarinetists included Johnny Dodds, Sidney Bechet, and Jimmie Noone. In 1919, Ory moved to California and in 1922 (possibly 1921) recorded the first two titles by a Black New Orleans jazz band ("Ory's Creole Trombone" and "Society Blues") under the band title of Spike's Seven Pods of Pepper Orchestra. In 1925 he moved to Chicago, played regularly with King Oliver, and recorded many classic sides with Oliver, Louis Armstrong (in his Hot Five and Seven), and Jelly Roll Morton, among others.

Hopefully, the reappearance of this revelatory 1956 record will force many critics and musicians to reconsider Brubeck's stature in the world of jazz piano. Recorded late at night in his Oakland, California, home, it was Brubeck's first full solo-piano recording and also his first all-original record, and it illustrates his marvelously elegant fusion of classical and cocktail conceptions. Brubeck understands blues and swing, but he uses these elements as tools for effect, not as default settings. Brubeck instead offers a fuller palette of emotions and ideas--playful, sober, stern, happy, pensive, cerebral. While "In Your Own Sweet Way" and "The Duke" have become standards, the album includes obscure gems such as the minisuite "Two-Part Contention," with its many tempo, mood, and stylistic turns, and the discreetly swinging "Walkin' Line," although he lapses into melodrama with "Weep No More." Still, on "The Duke" (originally titled "The Duke Meets Darius Milhaud"), it's fascinating to hear how easily and smoothly he fits all 12 scale notes into his opening bass figure. As he himself points out in the brilliant original notes , the marriage of European music and American music dates back to New Orleans jazzmen such as King Oliver. And to dismiss any notions of intellectualism in jazz would be a great insult to everyone from Oliver to Charlie Parker to John Lewis to Bill Evans to Sun Ra. This is the jazz of Brubeck's own experience, and while it may sound too poised and polished for some tastes, it is honestly his and must be viewed as such.
