This is the second live CD by Terry Waldo's Gutbucket Syncopators on Delmark
from the now-defunct Blackbird label. The first, Hot House Rag (Delmark
239), has sold very well and received excellent reviews. The Ohio Theater
Concert took place on April 13, 1974 and featured Roy Tate, trumpet; Jim Snyder,
trombone; Frank Powers, clarinet, alto and tenor saxophone; Terry Waldo, piano;
Bill Moorhead, banjo; Mike Walbridge, tuba; Wayne Jones, drums; Edith Wilson,
vocals. Edith Wilson was the second African-American woman to make phonograph
records, recording a full year and a half before Bessie Smith. The addition
of nine previously unissued songs makes this CD 69 minutes of inspired traditional
jazz and ragtime. Also available: Hot House Rag (Delmark 239), and
Edith Wilson's own album He MayBe Your Man (Delmark 637).
