So what do you have in your MADE IN NEW ORLEANS:The Hurricane Sessions collection? Please feel free to ask questions or make comments about any of the collectibles in your set. You can do so by clicking 'COMMENTS' below this post. Or, email me personally at email@example.com. Periodically, we'll have a featured item along with bios & stories. Let's get the dialogue started!
"...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:
