Unfortunately, this was the only record that Fate Marable made, and our only opportunity to hear what this important band really sounded like. Fate Marable conducted bands on the Strekfus river boat lines that featured many of the great Jazz musicians of the 1920s like Louis Armstrong, Baby and Johnny Dodds, Zutty Singleton, King Oliver, Johnny St. Cyr, Tommy Ladnier and Pops Foster to name a few. This is the first record that Zutty Singleton ever appeared on.
