Description

When these live performances occurred two decades ago, Thomas was 77 years old and Nelson was 71. Playing thousands of miles from home, with musicians several generations their junior, they retained the stirring powers that rocked the "jitney" halls of Algiers half a century ago. The vintage tunes on the programme, now considered standards, were the popular songs of their youth. They had probably played them hundreds of times, yet their music retains a fresh and exciting quality - the heart of New Orleans jazz.
