Dewey Jackson - Live at the Barrel


None April 19th, 2007

Delmark

Dewey Jackson (1900-1966), a trumpet player and contemporary of Louis Armstrong, specialized in the hot, swinging, New Orleans-style jazz of the Twenties and Thirties that Armstrong made famous.

Though Jackson tried the New York scene, then the pinnacle of the jazz world, he eventually opted to return back home to St. Louis. It was there in 1952 that future Delmark Records founder Bob Koester recorded one of Jackson's rowdy shows at The Barrel, a local jazz haunt.

While this isn't a groundbreaking release, it adds considerably to the catalog of Jackson, who made few recordings during his lifetime, despite a healthy performing schedule. On this particular night, Jackson and company' featuring Don Ewell on piano' ripped through a number of tunes familiar to any lover of classic New Orleans jazz, including many that were played by Satchmo himself during his career.

If you like that legend's earliest recordings, you'll enjoy this outing with Jackson.  "”Dave Bond
