Lionel Ferbos & The Palm Court Jazz Band- Sunday March 30th

At 102, trumpeter Lionel Ferbos is the oldest working jazz musician in New Orleans (born July 17, 1911). A native New Orleanian whose career has remained almost exclusively in the city, he leads his band weekly at the Palm Court Jazz Cafe, a French Quarter club. During his long career, Ferbos has worked with some of the giants of early traditional jazz, including Captain John Handy and Mamie Smith, and more recently with widely recognized contemporary revivals of the old style music like the original stage band of the off-Broadway hit "One Mo' Time." He has played at all of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festivals.
