LIONEL FERBOS and THE CREOLE SWINGERS - Jazz in New Orleans the 80s
Lionel Ferbos was well known in the City for his long association with the New Orleans Ragtime Orchestra, however the 'Swingers' allow more freedom away from the set musical scores required for the stricter tempo of Ragtime music. Lionel amassed a large repertoire over many years, and some of the more unusual tunes are included on this album.
