Discovery: Dixieland Jazz
Please note: This 'kinescope' recording was originally made in 1953 by filming the picture from a live video monitor. The picture quality - especially sharpness - is much lower than the rest of our footage produced on 16mm film. KPIX-TV and the San Francisco Museum of Art presents a program in the 'Discovery' series about the history and influence of jazz music in American culture, hosted by Dr Lloyd Luckmann with Phil Elwood. Features George Lewis and his Ragtime Jazz Band (who were in residency at San Francisco's Hangover Club) performing five songs: 'Careless Love'; 'Panama Rag'; 'Bugle Boy March'; 'Closer Walk With Thee' and 'Ice Cream'. Also includes brief interviews with Lewis and Avery "Kid" Howard and scenes of Barbara Gifford introducing the museum's different musical programs.
