American jazz musician and New Orleans legend Waldren Joseph (1918-2004) has played over 6 decades with everyone on the jazz scene including giants like Big Joe Turner, Smiley Lewis, Proffesor Longhair, Fats Domino, Joe Robichaux, Ida Cox and many many others, yet this recording on Shalom Records would be his only headlining effort in his lifetime. Although he passed away in 2004, he had become one of the last remaining links with early jazz to survive into the twenty-first century.
