The full details of this Levee Serenaders record will probably always remain a mystery, despite the fact that it was recorded between two sets of well-documented Red Hot Pepper sessions. Despite the anonymity, these numbers have the true Morton stamp.

Taken from the book Recorded Jazz: A Critical Guide by Rex Harris and Brian Rust.
