From the back cover: The Connecticut Traditional Jazz Club, Inc., that durable organization devoted to the preservation, documentation and presentation of the Traditional Jazz art, delights in offering this eighth album featuring selections from the 1972 archives.

We have noted before that jazz is an international language and that language has been spoken between our album covers of the past. But 1972 was an even more international year, for no less than three bands from across seas graced our concerts. Two of them, the famous "Papa But" Viking Jazzband from Denmark and the French High Society Jazz Band are contained herein, the latter in a combination jam session with the New Orleans Funeral and Ragtime Orchestra led by Dick Miller and Woody Allen. Barry Martyn's Ragtime Band made its fourth annual trek from England and can be heard on ConnTrad SLP 4.

The Popular Red Onion Jazz Band inaugurated what was to be a year notable in ConnTrad history. In addition to the variety and international flavor to the music, the club sponsored its first riverboat jazz cruise featuring the New Black Eagle Jazz Band led by transplanted British cornetist Tony Pringle. And a smashing success it was. The momentum was maintained by the most ambitious of the annual picnics. Over 250 members, guests and offspring heard a New Orleans band led by Percy Humphrey, and including Louis Nelson, Chester Zardis, Alfred Lewis and Louis Barbarin, blast the leaves from the trees under a warm September sun.
