Format: Audio CD
This CD has 25 tracks covering, in chronological order, the period 1922-1944. Somewhat surprisingly 3 of the musicians on the first 2 tracks recorded in 1922 (Kid Ory, Mutt Carey and Ed Garland) also play on the final tracks recorded in 1944. Between these are tracks where Kid Ory plays with the bands of jazz "greats" King Oliver, Louis Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton, as well as his own New Orleans Wanderers and New Orleans Bootblacks. Few CDs embrace such a wealth of talent, and the names of the individuals within these famous bands read like a roll of honour including Johnny Dodds, Jimmie Noone, Omer Simeon, Johnny StCyr, Bud Scott and many, many more. What a testimony to Kid Ory's greatness.
Also few CDs have such a commendable selection of numbers. In spite of remastering the first 1922 recordings of "Ory's Creole Trombone" and "Society Blues" are rather disappointing but are played by the composer in authentic New Orleans style, and the first number is repeated on a later track recorded magnificantly with Kid Ory towering above Louis Armstrong's Hot Five. The Louis Armstrong band also features other Ory compositions "Muskrat Ramble" and "Savoy Blues".
However it is the earlier recordings with King Oliver's Dixie Syncopators where Kid Ory's diversity of performance is best demonstrated with "Wa Wa Wa", "Tack Annie", "New Wang Wang Blues" and "Snag It", together with his superlative contributions to Jelly Roll Morton's Red Hot Peppers including Morton's own "Grandpa's Spells" and "Cannon Ball Blues". It is satisfying that the tracks chosen for Kid Ory playing with his own groups are all Armstrong numbers.

Format: Audio CD
This is a great CD demonstrating Kid Ory's talents as virtuoso or ensemble player but it is marred by the first couple of poor 1922 recordings and an unbalanced 1944 radio broadcast - without these it could be rated 5-star. Kid Ory plays trombone with bands of the `greats' of New Orleans jazz - Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton etc. and alongside other talented musicians such as Johnny Dodds, Jimmie Noone, Omer Simeon, Johnny StCyr etc. Possibly the best of this group is the second version of `Ory's Creole Trombone' where he towers above Louis Armstrong's Hot Five, together with `Grandpa's Spells' and `Cannon Ball Blues' with Jelly Roll Morton's Red Peppers. Kid Ory also plays with his own bands of which my favourites are `Perdido Street Blues and `Gatemouth' with his New Orleans Wanderers, and `Mad Dog' for his `New Orleans Bootblacks', and in addition he features his own compositions `Muskrat Ramble' and `Savoy Blues'. This CD is a testimony to New Orleans greatest tailgate trombonist.

The Best Collection of Kid Ory 13 Dec. 2001
By Tsang Lok Ming - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Kid Ory was a very important figure in Jazz history: Louis Armstrong, King Oliver etc. were trained up in his band in 1910s; his band was first black Jazz band to record (first white band to record was Original Dixieland Jazz Band in 1917); he played trombone part in formidable Louis Armstrong and his Hot Five in 1920s.
The tracks here ranged from his first recording, also first black Jazz recording "Ory's Creole Trombone" and "Society Blues" in 1922, through a lot of tracks played with great Jazz figures liked Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton in 1920s, to his Creole Jazz Band in 1944. As so, it is not necessary to describe how it is worth buying in details. A Must Have collection for Jazz fans. It also a typical sampler of 1920s New Orlean Jazz for everyone.

The creme de la creme of New Orleans 14 Sept. 2005
By DE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love the New Orleans sound and Kid Ory was one of the town's great ambassadors for that matter. His Band had the creme de la creme of New Orleans players. I am really attached to his Muskrat Ramble interpretation but you can find here a chest full of gems, not just one or two occasional good moments (like with so many other unfortunate artists of the period).
ASV has done a great remastering work here but for some it is not enough. I know.
Although the quality of recording may sound poor to those ears, compared with Ory's 50's and 60's late bloom recordings, you should at least taste the feeling of one old Grandpa's Spells before dismissing this vintage records as some museum pieces or a lesson in history.
Yes, sure, it could function as both but it is much more than that. The music here is alive!
All the rare and special of New Orleans is preserved here note by note and you can actually hear the streets and visualize the band marching down there.
