Album Review

Most of the musicians on this enjoyable CD did not actually play much with Eddie Condon (bassist Bob Haggart excepted), but the music is very much in the Condon Chicago jazz tradition, and cornetist Ed Polcer led the house band at the last Condon's club.

Highlights include "California Here I Come," "Fidgety Feet," "Wherever There's Love," and "Hindustan."
