Rampart Street Paraders
Rampart Street Paraders
“The most sophisticated, the most gloriously fashioned – and, for some, the best – Dixieland jazz on record” - that is jazz maestro Digby Fairweather’s verdict on these joyous performances by the great jazz trombonist who is not, perhaps, nearly as famous as his name.
Abe Lincoln has, remarkably, not had a solo CD prior to this Retrospective survey of his finest work with Matty Matlock’s Rampart Street Paraders during the mid-50s. Nearly 80 minutes covers 18 titles that include both familiar favourites (The Sheik of Araby, Shim-Me-Sha-Wabble . . .) and little-known numbers (The March of the Mustangs, Peruna . . .).
This team of supreme Dixie stylists – tenorist Eddie Miller, trumpeters Clyde Hurley and Dick Cathcart, guitarist George Van Eps, drummer Nick Fatool and others – produces pure gold for anyone with a taste for traditional jazz. President Abraham Lincoln once said: “Whatever you are, be a good one.” Well, Abe Lincoln was certainly one good jazz trombonist.
