Sharkey & His Kings Of Dixieland


Being only 5' 4", loud, flamboyant, cocky and arrogant and with a Cavanaugh bowler hat perched on his head, trumpeter and bandleader Sharkey Bonano was the ultimate showman. This release presents his recordings of 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 of 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.
