George Lewis - Don Ewell Reunion DE-220

These musicians were amongst the original practitioners of New Orleans style traditional jazz music. When this live performance was recorded in 1966 there may have been less than 20 musicians who could be included in that catagory. The Bunk Jounson New Orleans BAnd that first returned traditional jazz to the public consciousness was a George Lewis unit. After Bunk died the Lewis band became the standard-bearer for New Orleans jazz throughout the 50s and 60s. Listen closely to what you hear here, as this is music from masters on New Orleans jazz, a living, breathing, listening ensemble stomping together through a folio of old favorites. You can't get this kind of stuff anymore.
