Kenny Davern & The Eddie Condon All Stars: Kenny Davern: A Night with Eddie Condon
The Eddie Condon All Stars featuring Kenny Davern on clarinet and soprano sax was the musical event of the evening, and an event it was. This was a good band on a good night, a group of musicians having a great time playing together. A solid rhythm section and a couple of excellent soloists highlight the performance. Kenny Davern on clarinet plays a soulful, agile clarinet and Bernie Privin plays an outgoing, vigorous trumpet; these two trade off spotlight solos all night. The lineup of tunes includes such old favorites as "Muskrat Ramble," "Royal Garden Blues," and "Ain’t Misbehavin." This is traditional jazz played with heart by musicians who gracefully convey what traditional jazz is all about.
