Classic New Orleans jazz. Entertaining and spirited music, in a well-packaged release with photos and liner notes. If you have the opportunity to get this vintage album in good condition, it is well worth it. Note: If you have a phono preamp which allows you to adjust the equalization curve, set the bass turnover at 500 Hz or RIAA, and the treble rolloff at about -8. If you don't have a turntable which plays 78 RPM records, the music has been reissued on Side 1 of Bunk Johnson And His New Orleans Jazz Band* - Bunk Johnson In New York 1945.
