Born and raised in New Orleans, Dupree was a popular recording artist as early as 1940, eventually making hundreds of records for Okeh, King, Atlantic and other labels. Dupree left New Orleans in 1954, but he returned in 1990, at age 79, to play the Jazz and Heritage Festival and to record this album. Some tracks are just Dupree and his longtime guitarist Kenn Lending; the rest include a crack New Orleans band including guitarist Wayne Bennett, trumpeter Teddy Riley, bassist Walter Payton Jr., and tenor saxman Alvin 'Red' Tyler.
