George Lewis and his famous Jazzmen
From Preservation Hall in New Orleans here is a clip filmed for some Japanese jazz fans played by George Lewis and his famous Jazzmen. I recognize Punch Miller on trumpet and Louis Nelson on trombone.
This was one of the music pieces that made George famous. Many bands, especially in Europe have taken this piece in their repertoire, but yes folks, this is the real thing! This was probably recorded in 1962. George's fame started in 1942 when he was a member of the Bunk Johnson band. He died in 1968.
