When it comes to the Salt City Six, former drummer and longtime mainstay, Danny D’Imperio, gets the award for “Treasure Hunter of the Year” for discovering the master of a never-before- released session recorded in Rochester, N. Y. on April 2, 1978. It was last recording of the band and is
excellent. Personnel include: Jack Maheu, clarinet; Will Alger, trombone and vocals; John "Punch" Thomas, trumpet; Barry Keiner, piano; Barney Mallon, bass; Danny D’Imperio, drums. Added artists included Charlie Mussen, banjo and Carol Leigh, vocals.
The ten tunes expertly recorded by engineer Bill Dengler are: Sheik of Araby, Yellow Dog Blues, Sleep, I’m Comin’ Virginia, Sweet and Slow, At the Codfish Ball, Sweet Lotus Blossom, Aunt Hagar’s Blues, Wang Wang Blues and Limehouse Blues. Will Alger’s vocals, which were seldom recorded, are a special treat.
