• DUKES of DIXIELAND - Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans?

New Orleans has a special place in the history of jazz, and The Dukes of Dixieland have a special place in the story of New Orleans. As natives of this city rich in musical tradition it was inevitable that their chosen path would lead down that well-trodden road taken by such luminaries such as Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Bunk Johnson and others.

Continuing the success that we had with our first outing with The Dukes. 'JASCD 721 - THE FABULOUS SOUNDS OF - THE DUKES OF DIXIELAND' - we have selected in chorological order the next four LPs that were issued on the AFSD record label. The repertoire, includes selections such as 'Swanee River', 'Dinah' 'Bill Bailey Won't You Please Come Home' and the seminal 'Alexander's Ragtime Band' The next set of selections find the Dukes in the full Mardi - Gras spirit, listen to them on 'Panama Rag', 'If I Ever Cease To Love', 'Loveless Love' and 'Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans?' theme song of The Dukes Of Dixieland which is presented here in its entirety.

The Dukes Of Dixieland are a perfect illustration of a jazz combo which has taken the legacy they inherited as New Orleans musicians and has gone on to greater things. It is without doubt the question 'Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans?' should really be Does New Orleans Know What It Means to Miss The Dukes of Dixieland?
