NBC's "Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street" was a weekly radio jam session of the 1940s with two fine house bands backing guest soloists who were the leading exponents of jazz. The show made its debut on February 11, 1940. During its first months on NBC it was a sustaining feature (meaning unsponsored) in a late Sunday afternoon (4:30pm) time slot. It soon developed a loyal following and on September 16, 1940, NBC began airing the show in prime time on Monday nights at 9pm. The final broadcast was aired on October 8, 1944.

Most commercially released samples of the program showcase vocalist Dinah Shore and sometimes she is joined by Lena Horne. These two received national exposure from their Lower Basin Street appearances. Shore's style was somewhat out of place with the predominantly 2-beat Dixieland style that these bands played, but they made room for her. Horne was singing a softer style here than the charismatic belting that she became known for in later years, but she is more at home with the Dixie stylings than Dinah.

On this album the instrumental numbers are performed by Henry Levine and his Barefoooted Dixieland Philharmonic

Henry "Hotlips" Levine was a native of London, Levine was raised in New York City. At the age of 19, in 1926, replaced Nick La Rocca as the trumpeter in the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, the popular group that had made the first jazz record nine years earlier.

In 1927, at the age of 20, Levine returned to England to play with a popular big band led by Bert Ambrose. Another member of that band was a young trombonist named Ted Heath who would later lead the best-known British swing band.

In 1930, Levine returned to New York and made a name for himself playing with various bands and theatre orchestras.

In 1940, he became a staff musician at NBC in New York. Soon, he was directing a revolutionary weekly network radio program of jazz music, The Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street. Trying to popularize traditional jazz, Levine used a few gimmicks. He called his band "The Barefooted Dixieland Philharmonic" and had announcer Gene Hamilton introduce the songs in a formal, but tongue-in-cheek, classical music style. The band posed for publicity photos wearing powdered wigs like a Baroque group. But, Levine did present good solid jazz with some of the best jazz performers. Among his guests were young vocalists Dinah Shore and Lena Horne, and soprano saxophonist Sidney Bechet.

In addition to his weekly network radio show, Levine recorded with such jazz legends as Jelly Roll Morton and Bechet.
