This CD contains definitive 1953 recordings of George Lewis, who led the most authentic New Orleans jazz band. It's a sound that led via English skiffle groups to rock music of the ‘60s. It's a New Orleans brass band that's come inside to play with a full rhythm section. It's relevant in spite of the vintage. It's blues, gospel, ragtime, pop before rock. It struts and it stomps. Here's the first studio recordings of the George Lewis New Orleans Band which toured colleges, clubs and festivals and brought the sound, later settled-in at Preservation Hall, of jazz's first beginnings. With Kid Howard, Jim Robinson. Also available from the same recording session "Hello Central...Give Me Doctor Jazz" (DMK #201).
