Fellow mailers,

Steve B led by his accounts of George arriving in New York.
What about you folks who were already listening to the likes of Watters, Murphy, Scobey , FH5 + 2 on the West Side.
Did you, on initial impact , like the Lewis Bands approach. Bunk w Murphy had past by and that was the 40s. Even Ory might have been taken aback for all I know about it. I wasn't there. Ory had been away from the Crescent City for many years.
Beverley Caverns and other clubs out there ~ let me know reading lp covers is okay but your first hand accounts would be better. Some may have met them (and Ory band)

I still haven't seen the Life mag article. Didn't John Casimir feature in one issue too or was that Capt John Handy or both or neither.
