The complete Golden and OKeh recordings by Jimmie (Maloney) Joy, a Texas clarinetist who led a college jazz band at the University of Texas in the early 1920s. After turning professional in 1923, the band became nationally known, recording for Golden in Los Angeles, OKeh in Dallas and Kansas City and, later, for Brunswick in Chicago. Extensive notes for this release were written by renowned researcher Dick Raichelson, and the booklet includes photographs from band members interviewed by him. Sound restoration is by noted audio engineer Hans Eekhoff.
