Made In New Orleans contents question

M.B. asked:
"...have received the Made in New Orleans 504 limited edition box set which contains a photograph of a musician holding a clarinet and standing in a garden,he is wearing a spotted shirt, there is no identification as to who this musician is.Could this be a photograph of George Lewis? Would appreciate your advice on the correct identification of this musician."


The musician in your photograph is indeed George Lewis. Does your photo have a Preservation Hall embossed seal on it? If so, your photograph is a cutout from the album cover of "Jazz at Preservation Hall: The George Lewis Band of New Orleans".

Here's some links about George Lewis:
