1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Barry McCanna TOP 500 REVIEWER on 3 Jun. 2012
Format: Audio CD
Tracklist is as follows:

Frank Guarante's World Known Georgians: Georgians Blues; Lonely Acres; Hard to get Gerty; Boneyard Shuffle; Lonesome and Sorry; Valencia The Plantation Orchestra: Silver Rose; Arabella's Wedding Day; Smiling Joe; For Baby and Me The Devonshire Restaurant Dance Band: Sax Appeal; Sugar Foot Stomp (takes 1 & 2); Milenberg Joys; Slippery Elm; Hangin' Around; I Haven't Told Her, She Hasn't Told Me Eddie South & his Alabamians: Doin' The Raccoon; Two Guitars Noble Sissle & his Orchestra: Kansas City Kitty; Camp Meeting Day; Miranda; I'm Crooning a Tune About June; You Want Lovin' and I Want Love

The release of this reissue virtually coincided with the Jazz Oracle CD "Americans in Europe", and six of the Georgians sides are duplicated, which is a pity. But whereas Jazz Oracle then concentrated solely on George Carhart's New Yorkers, this compilation embraces four other groups. The 15-piece Plantation Orchestra accompanied the long-running revue "Blackbirds" at the London Pavilion, and recorded four of the numbers from the score. Columbia captured their full ensemble sound, and the fierce intensity of the trumpet solos, which so thrilled contemporary audiences. Of the four, my favourite is Silver Rose, which seemingly simple tune is a masterful exercise in syncopation. Frank Guarente joined the Savoy Orpheans in early 1927, and participated in many of Bert Firman's sessions for Zonophone. Five titles in the jazz idiom were recorded on 26th May, and all are here, together with an alternate take of Sugar Foot Stomp. The two Eddie South sides were recorded in Paris, and display an early example of small group swing.

SWINGING LONDON, GENEVA & PARIS 28 Jun. 2012
By Barry McCanna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD

Five titles in the jazz idiom were recorded on 26th May, and all are here, together with an alternate take of Sugar Foot Stomp. The two Eddie South sides were recorded in Paris, and display an early example of small group swing. Noble Sissle's London recordings are notable for the presence of trumpeters Demas Dean & Pike Davis (who'd been in the Plantation House line-up), reedsmen Buster Bailey & Rudy Jackson, and violinist Juice Wilson. These recordings demonstrate that the epithet Swinging London was bestowed about forty years too late! Remastering is excellent, and the 32-page booklet carries a full discography and an extensive liner note by Mark Berresford.
Superb collection of rare and top jazz. Fine transfers too. A winner for me. Trygve Hernæs 9 May 2013

Rare, fine and important jazz. Historically very important. The Europeans got to hear real jazz by US visitors. Top voting from me.
