However it is the earlier recordings with King Oliver's Dixie Syncopators where Kid Ory's diversity of performance is best demonstrated with "Wa Wa Wa", "Tack Annie", "New Wang Wang Blues" and "Snag It", together with his superlative contributions to Jelly Roll Morton's Red Hot Peppers including Morton's own "Grandpa's Spells" and "Cannon Ball Blues".
