Don’t just expect Dixieland from this album recorded in 1963 by Ewing Nunn and released by Jazzology Records. Nope.
As this six-man ensemble is going to deliver the William Tell overture, Granada, El Capitan (which is great), ah, so pure, and New Orleans like you’ve never heard before…cooking! This way-fun album is unquestionably a classic, and this is its finest incarnation, ready for your listening room.
Recorded live in 1963 at the Penn Sheraton’s River Boat Room in Pittsburgh, PA, this extremely rare recording of the Salt City Six plays the Classics in Dixieland was long a favorite of Harry Person of The Absolute Sound.

The Salt City Six is a delight. Jack Maheu, clarinet and leader, is a highly gifted musician who produces the only ingredient that is essential to jazz: a happy sound.
The musical abilities represented in the Salt City Six are such that, if the big bands were still around, these players would all be featured soloists.
