All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
Clarinetist George Lewis and trumpeter Elmer Talbert first worked together as members of drummer Arnold DePass' Olympia Brass Band back in 1929 on the streets of New Orleans, LA.

Clarinetist George Lewis and trumpeter Elmer Talbert first worked together as members of drummer Arnold DePass' Olympia Brass Band back in 1929 on the streets of New Orleans, LA. Talbert gigged and recorded regularly with Lewis during the years 1949-1950, blowing his horn and singing the words to old-time melodies with an earthy passion that sometimes rose to crescendos of thunderous gruffness. In 2007, American Music sewed together rare recordings of the George Lewis band with Elmer Talbert recorded at six different locations, including the Parisian Room at 116 Royal Street, a recording studio on Rampart Street, and WDSU radio's broadcasting facility, where the band entertained listeners on the Dixieland Jambake program. Talbert uses his voice on "Down by the Riverside," "Mama Don't Allow," and "Bye and Bye." These uncommon recordings have been carefully remastered and will warm the hearts of all who enjoy straightforward traditional New Orleans jazz without any frills. Further evidence of the Lewis/Talbert working friendship has been made available on American Music's At Herbert Otto's Party 1949 and Storyville's Jam Sessions.
