In 1947 Bunk Johnson, who played in New Orleans with Buddy Bolden in the 1890’s, hand-picked a group of New York musicians from a much later age group: the Harlem milleu of Chick Webb, Fletcher Henderson, etc. … Men who played dramatically different from the George Lewis band which Bunk had fronted on his earlier recordings. Bob Stendahl and Harold Drob recorded them at Carnegie Recital Hall and the results were issued by Columbia. Delmark is proud to have issued this historic event for the first time on CD – and with two alternate takes added.
