The Eureka Brass Band dates from 1920, when it was organized by clarinetist Willie Parker — he reportedly chose the name under the inspiration of some acquaintances from the West Indies, who had a band they called the Eureka, as related by Richard Knowles in his 1996 history of New Orleans brass bands.

The group's most famous leader was trumpet man Percy Humphrey, from 1946 onward. These sessions come from 1951, and include previously unreleased recordings. The audio was remastered for vinyl and press locally at New Orleans Record Press.
