A followup to the classic "Memories of You" session but without Johnny Mince. "Sometimes, if one closes ones eyes, the opening strains of a selection, even though recorded recently, can take the memory back decades. In the case at hand-the album Oh Baby—and in terms of this writers youthful forays onto the club scene, the emotional system replays the excitement this jazz-struck teenager felt, say, upon entering Washington, D. C.s Club Bali in the mid-1940s to see, for the very first time, Louis Armstrongs All Stars-well named, since on that bandstand with Pops were no less than Barney Bigard, Jack Teagarden, Earl Hines, Big Sid Catlett, and Arvell Shaw...I hope I make myself clear, for a similar sort of feverish condition came over me as I grooved on my first hearing of "Oh Baby", and several replays have not dimmed my enthusiasm. The album is truly vintage Chicago style."

—W. Royal Stokes, broadcaster and author of The Jazz Scene: An Informal history from New Orleans to 1990.
