Description
 
Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street

 
Like New Orleans Dixieland music? If you do, then you will love these thirty minute programs from the NBC Radio Network, broadcast in 1941.Featured are the bands of Henry Levine and Paul Lavalle, vocals by Diane Courtney, with such hosts as Gino "Long Locks" Hamilton, and Jackamo "Satchel Trousers" McCarthy.
 
Everyone on the program is jokingly addressed as either "professor" or "doctor," thereby attempting to give the impression that they have a certain lofty, high brow distinction. However, Gene Hamilton contradicts this image when he states that the Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street is out to "give culture its lumps," which it does, in a very delightfully musical, and humorous, way.
 
One of the early program vocalists was Dinah Shore, who went on to host the Chevy Show on NBC Television in the 1960s. In addition to his duties on the Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street, Paul Lavalle was the musical director at New York City's Radio City Music Hall.
 
Some of the guest artists include Stuff Smith and his jazz violin, the Charles Magnante Accordion Quartet, and Sylvia Marlow playing jazz on the harpsichord.
 
Henry LevineIn the middle of the show, guest commentators do such things as attempting to play an accordion under water, and an NBC Page introduces a corny new song he has just written, which will never, ever make the charts.
 
But, of course, the main attractions are the wonderful Dixieland band arrangements of Paul Lavalle and Henry Levine, which keep everything jumping.
 
These programs were recorded directly from the NBC Radio Network line, so the audio quality is exceptional.
 
If you like good Dixieland band music, and want to relive a laugh filled, fun time that was enjoyed by millions of radio listeners in 1941, the Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street will not disappoint you.
