While the jazz history books primarily classify the 1940s and '50s as the era in which bebop developed into the jazz mainstream, another musical movement was just as powerful and even more popular: the revival of New Orleans jazz.

Starting in 1949 with the Firehouse Five Plus Two and continuing until its final release in 1969, Lester Koenig's Good Time Jazz label was one of the most important of all the traditional jazz record companies, documenting a wide variety of legendary classic jazz musicians in their prime.

Good Time Jazz has long been a legendary name among trad jazz fans, making the release of The Good Time Jazz Story a major event, both historically and musically. This definitive four-disc retrospective, with a fully annotated and illustrated booklet, features many of the highpoints of the Good Time Jazz years and also includes some earlier items acquired from the Jazz Man catalog. The 92 consistently exciting selections, divided into four overlapping categories (Ragtime/Blues/Banjos, New Orleans, San Francisco, and Los Angeles), range from Jelly Roll Morton, Luckey Roberts, Willie "The Lion" Smith, and Wally Rose (whose recording of "Black and White Rag" helped launch the first revival of ragtime) to Bunk Johnson, George Lewis, Kid Ory, Paul Barbarin, Lu Watters' Yerba Buena Jazz Band, Turk Murphy, Bob Scobey, the Firehouse Five Plus Two, today's Silver Leaf Jazz Band, and many others. The Good Time Jazz Story will certainly delight both veteran collectors and those listeners just beginning to explore this joyful music.
