• Sharkey BONANO - Sharkey and His Kings of Dixieland

In New York from 1936-39 Sharkey Bonano was one of just three trumpeters leading bands, being only 5' 4", loud, flamboyant, cocky and arrogant and with Cavanaugh bowler hat perched on his head, he was the ultimate showman.

A selection of traditional tunes plus a few originals recorded between 1949 and 1953, beautifully crafted and played as if you were a regular at one on the famous Bourbon Street bistros of the time.

As well as being a star of Bourbon Street, Sharkey was also a regular performer on radio broadcasts. He was able to use the cream of the New Orleans musicians including Santo Pecora and Jack Delaney. Other featured artists include Lizzie Miles, and 'Bugle Sam' De Kemel who was also known as the 'Waffle Man'.

With a full discography and stunningly re-mastered this must surely be the foremost reference point for Sharkey Bonano.
