Across this set you will hear the great versatility and superior ensemble work that made Turk Murphy so popular across the scene and eventually why he was snapped up by major label Columbia in 1952. The first 12 tracks on this fantastic 2CD set showcases the variety of the band and include traditional tracks such as "St Louis Blues" plus tracks carried through from his Lu Watters days. Towards the close of the second disc we hear the band live and in full swing at the 1955 New Orleans Jazz Festival. Turk Murphy was a keen follower of "traditional Jazz" and a was a leading light in the San Francisco Dixieland movement working with the likes of Lu Watters and the Yerba Buena Jazz Band (YBJB).
