We received the following question last week regarding the Made In New Orleans:The Hurricane Sessions DVD:
"I have bought the 'Made in New Orleans' CD and DVD. I am disappointed that
there is absolutely no information with the DVD. I should be very grateful if
you could tell me who are the musicians at the Newport Jazz Festival and those
that accompany George Lewis on 'Redwing'." -Philip S.
The Preservation Hall Jazz Band musicians performing at the Newport Jazz Festival(year unknown) are Dede Pierce(trumpet,vocals), Billie Pierce(piano), Willie Humphrey(clarinet), "Big Jim" Robinson(trombone), Captain John Handy(saxophone),Allan Jaffe(tuba), and Josiah "Cie" Frazier(drums). They are performing the song "I Want A Little Girl".
On the Preservation Hall performance of "Redwing", George Lewis is accompanied by Avery "Kid" Howard(trumpet), "Big Jim" Robinson(trombone), Alcide "Slow Drag" Pavageau(bass), Dolly Adams(piano), and Joe Watkins(drums).
The DVD also includes:
-Preservation Hall Jazz Band music video "Complicated Life"
-The first appearance of Preservation Hall on the Brinkley News Hour in 1961
-A German TV newsreel featuring Preservation Hall
Thanks for your question Philip!
