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.
