This recording was made in Chicago on January 21st 1928 with Frances Hereford vocals, Edwin Swayzee trumpet, Louis Taylor trombone, Walter Thomas alto & bass sax, Jelly Roll Morton piano & leader, Leslie Corley banjo, Hayes Alvis tuba, and Walter Bishop drums.

*"Midnight Mama" was composed by Ferdinand "Jelly Roll" Morton.

This record remains a bit of a mystery because it wasn't originally released under Jelly Roll Morton's name and was labeled simply the "Levee Serenaders".
