Video Jukebox - Kid Ory

Exclusively the converting and uploading work of Jasper Van Pelt, here's a Video Jukebox selection of clips of Kid Ory performing on television in the late 1950s.  In addition to playing on Louis Armstrong's Hot Five recordings, Ory was an important New Orleans bandleader in the 1910s, a mentor to many jazz figures of the 20s century, and a genial purveyor of the New Orleans sound well into the sixties.  He's the subject of a new biography by John McCusker, Creole Trombone: Kid Ory and the Early Years of Jazz.  McCusker will be my guest on today's Passing Notes.
