These are the very earliest tracks of the Wilbur De Paris Band from 1944 and 1953. There’s a great line-up – Wilbur and Sidney De Paris, Sidney Bechet, Omer Simeon, Edmond Hall and Zutty Singleton to name just a few!
The Wilbur De Paris band became an institution in New York City during the 1950s and toured the world in the late 1950s. Both Wilbur and Sidney are here on all tracks, and Wilbur is definitely running the show! All in all, one fabulous CD!
