Product Description:

Recorded by Bill Rusell in New Orleans, 1943-45.
Personnel: George Lewis (clarinet); Chester Zardis, Alcide Pavageau (bass saxophone); Avery Howard (trumpet); Jim Robinson (trombone).
Recording information: New Orleans, LA.
Translator: Jack Towers.
Though Lewis played with the Sam Morgan big band in the 1920s, his singing, birdlike tone and artless-seeming style make him sound almost like a folk musician. Whatever, the band numbers -- with Kid Shots Madison or Kid Howard and the other usual suspects -- are delightfully familiar, and the trio cuts sound new. A little odd in spots -- "La Marseillaise"!? -- it's still entirely beguiling. ~ John Storm Roberts, Original Music
