By the mid-’50s, when Ory started recording for Norman Granz at Verve, Ory’s second blooming was in full flower. He was touring Europe and the United States to packed houses. Audiences in France were so enthusiastic that Ory supposedly mistook their exuberance for aggression-he thought he was being jeered when he was actually being cheered. A recording of that night’s performance opens the Mosaic set, and in that hyper-charged atmosphere one will hear the closest Ory comes to the sort of raw rowdiness that is typical of so many trad trombonists today.

On the other seven discs Ory is truer to form-indeed, remarkably true to the way he sounded in 1925, when he recorded the “Gut Bucket Blues” with Armstrong. There are plenty of the glissandi that in lesser hands degenerate into smears; there is that reliance in his solos on the repetition of the minor triad that might sound primitive were it not done with such grace. And there is the distinctive tone-robust but not raucous.

The music in this set-as with all the best New Orleans music-is party music. And that suggests a metaphor for describing how Ory’s playing differs from that of today’s pretenders. Imagine a party at which everyone has had enough from the jug to be pleasantly buzzed: What you get is an atmosphere of relaxed excitement. Now imagine that party many hours later when the only folks left are the angry drunks, and they’re all in your face. Ory’s bands are always a party-but never out of control.

No matter how good the party, eight CDs may prove to be as exhausting as a week’s worth of Mardi Gras. Which is one downside with this Mosaic set: Recorded when Ory couldn’t have been more set in his ways, there is little variation from session to session, from tune to tune. Still, it’s worth listening to the lot, if just to get to disc five, which features Ory with trumpeter Teddy Buckner revisiting the music of W.C. Handy.
