Dave Lewis on trombone, in the penultimate shot, long hair to boot, reverts to his first instrument for a fine send off. You're looking well Dave.

So sad to hear Ed O'Donnell is no longer with us. End of a great era. He brought more pleasure to more lives than most of us can even dream of doing, and did a huge amount to pass on the wonderful New Orleans sound to generations to come. Thank you Ed.

This link is probably already in the thread somewhere but it seems appropriate to re-post it.

I second that Dave (Bert), preferably with Martin on clarinet. Just been listening to Monty Sunshine on some old tracks and it struck me how both he and Martin Fox's techniques and melodic improvisation were so much alike. I am sure that Sunshine was a major influence on his style.

Martin Fox was my hero. Brilliant. God knows why he never hit the big time commercially in the great 50s/60s trad revival. I could hear all kinds of influences in him: Johnny Dodds, Sandy Brown, Wally Fawkes.

Thank you by the way Bob for sending me the two links below to U-tube videos of performances of Black-eyed Blues and Oriental Man by Ed O'Donnell at the Eagle Pub in Leeds in 1991, with Jim Fuller on trumpet, John Tennant on clarinet, Mike Moonman on bass, and Taff Lloyd on banjo. Only still photos but great ones, and great jazz; and a great treat for all who treasure memories of Ed. They may have to be copied and pasted into a browser to activate them.
