Bob Greene – St. Peter’s Street Strutters
Delmark DE 234
Compact Disc (2009)
On CD for the first time! Recorded on December 30, 1964 at Preservation Hall in New Orleans, this album is unique because at the time there were few sessions being done by traditional jazz units other than six- or seven-piece bands — and it found favor with a wide range of fans, combining elements of both West Coast and New Orleans styles of Jazz. It’s been 45 years since pianist Bob Greene and banjoist Steve Larner strutted down St. Peter Street from Preservation Hall to the Red Garter to meet cornetist, Ernie Carson and tubaist Hal Johnson. But the great music lives on with the addition of 4 previously un-issued songs, 14 songs in all.
