We break out another of my dad’s favorite musicians, but he’s not a trumpet player. He does however play the style of music that is a big portion of my dad’s collection…Dixieland. While this album was released 57 years ago, all of the music on it was written over 100 years ago. In fact four of the songs on this episode were written in the 19th century. So get ready for some old traditional music in true New Orleans fashion with Volume 133: The Village Fountain.
