This band was organized by drummer Johnny Stein after Stein's Dixie Jass Band broke up and became the Original Dixieland Jass Band. It is interesting to note that Achille Baquet was an African-American, but passed for White and played for mainly White bands in New Orleans, including Papa Jack Laine's Reliance Orchestra. His brother George Baquet was a member of the Original Creole Orchestra and Jelly Roll Morton's Red Hot Peppers. The band also recorded under the names of the Original New Orleans Jazz Band and Jimmy Durante's Jazz Band.
