Dirty Jazz From Down South

A mix of upbeat instrumental jazz, heavy on the saxophones, horns, drums. In this case, "Down South" refers to the Caribbean, with most of these ensembles (Cyril Diaz, Johnny Gomez, Lorna Pierre and others) hailing from Trinidad and Tobago. All were involved in calypso playing, which is reflected in the lively dance tunes they perform for this recording, although the Conrad Jones' Ensemble's musical contribution includes the swing standard "All of Me."
