Overview

Endless the Trek, Endless the Search

What you have here is a critically acclaimed George Lewis album, considered by some to contain the best music he had put onto record since the exciting Filiberto's Music Store Jam Session of 1950. This intriguingly titled album was recorded by one Ken Mills on August 28 and September 1, 1962, at the Jeunes Amis Hall on North Robertson Street in New Orleans. The ensemble, billed as Creole George Guesnon's New Orleans Band, had trumpeter Kid Thomas Valentine and trombonist Jim Robinson in the front line with Lewis, backed by banjoist Guesnon, bassist Papa John Joseph, and drummer Josiah Frazier. Considering how much posthumous flack George Lewis has taken from perhaps over-informed commentators, for this album to attract praise it must be (and really is) really solid and well worth having in the home. Note that "Kid Thomas' Boogie Woogie" is also known as "Kid Thomas' Double Woogie."
