“Dixie Parade”, arranged by Ingo Luis, is a medley featuring five standards from the early days of Jazz. When arranging, Ingo likes to dress old songs in new settings. He loves combining motives and citing external sources, and is not afraid of mixing styles in order to create something new and interesting, as he does in “Dixie Parade” with these five familiar melodies.

Muskrat Ramble”, written by Kid Ory in 1926, was first recorded by Louis Armstrong and his Hot Five, and became the group's most frequently recorded piece. It was a prominent part of the “Dixieland Revival” repertoire in the 1930s and 1940s, and was recorded by many of the most prominent artists of the time. "St. James Infirmary Blues" is an American Folksong of anonymous origin. The title is derived from St. James Hospital in London, a religious foundation for the treatment of leprosy. The melody is based on an 18th century English folk song called “The Unfortunate Rake”. “Fidgety Feet” was composed by pianist Henry Ragas, one of the most influential early Jazz Pianists. The composer of the jazz standard “Tiger Rag” is unclear, with a number of musicians, including pianist/composer Jelly Roll Morton, laying claim to its authorship. It was made famous in a recording by the “Original Dixieland Jazz Band”. Finally, “Down by the Riverside” is a traditional gospel tune, first published in the American Songbag of 1927. It has been covered many times, and was a hit for Elvis Presley.

There is a vocal passage in the Trombone, which may be played rather than sung.
