The Original Salty Dogs – New Orleans Shuffle
Delmark DE 240
Compact Disc (2001)
This is the third CD to appear on Delmark with The Original Salty Dogs. On the first they supported Clancy Hayes (Delmark 210), on the second Franz Jackson (Delmark 237). The OSD are generally classified as a West Coast revivalist, traditional jazz band, and play in a style whose origins date back to the 1920s. But their music is a synthesis of styles transcending the revivalist category as you’ll hear echoes of Bix, Red Nichols, as well as the old New Orleanians. New Orleans Shuffle was recorded in 1966 &’69 and contains fourteen songs including five bonus tracks, at 60 minutes.
