New Orleans -- As part of our Drummer and Smoke series, the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival will present "The Jazz Revival Revisited" featuring Tom Sancton and Dr. Michael White.

These two leading exponents of the traditional New Orleans clarinet style will celebrate the music of George Lewis. After his first recordings with trumpeter Bunk Johnson in the 1940's, Lewis spearheaded the so-called jazz revival of the 1950's and 60's. With his lyrical tone and pulsing drive, he won fans around the world, touring widely in the U.S., Europe and Japan, making more than a hundred recordings, and inspiring generations of younger musicians to take up the banner of traditional jazz. Among them: Tom Sancton and Michael White.
