SAMMY RIMINGTON: Visits New Orleans
Arhoolie, 2008

This is top-flight traditional New Orleans jazz, recorded live at three gigs in 2005 for use in a film about Arhoolie Records. Rimington is a British clarinetist who studied under the great George Lewis and is now one of the best trad jazz players anywhere. These “field recordings” capture all the raw excitement of the music. Great stuff; check it out!

It’s all wonderful. Fo’s Picks: 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 10, 11

1. 5:40 – upbeat stomp, loose & fun
2. 4:41 – sweet ballad drag; nice!
3. 3:51 – warm-hearted midtempo
4. 5:58 – lazy lament, great solos
5. 5:20 – upbeat shuffle; gotta love it
6. 4:12 – oooh… sweet Dixie blues
7. 6:29 – happy parade march
8. 4:32 – slidin’ gospel-blues
9. 4:29 – cute, happy toe-tapper
10. 4:31 – slow Cajun waltz/stomp
11. 3:20 – happy clarinet & fiddles
12. 7:44 – loose brass band jam
