Norrie Cox grew up in England, where his interest in New Orleans music grew during the late `50s and early `60s when New Orleans-styled jazz topped the English pop charts. Inspired by the great clarinetists Johnny Dodds and George Lewis, he taught himself to play improvised, contrapuntal jazz and formed the San Jacinto Jazz Band. Norrie moved to the U.S. and in '87 he played with cornetist Charlie DeVore when the idea for a dream band that would play real New Orleans music was born. DeVore played at Preservation Hall in the '50s and was a founding member of the Hall Brothers Jazz Band in Minneapolis. Recorded in a classic woodfloor dance hall Dance Hall Days is traditional jazz at its best! Descriptive notes by Butch Thompson.
