Don't let the 'Dixie' in the title put you off (I know some jazzers stear clear of this branch of our music!). This is so well played and infectious that you just can't help but enjoy it, and there is so much more than your average New Orleans work-out contained within. These are master musicians, on top form, enjoying themselves. I love it!!
