  7. Great Band! Missing youtube clip, can you help?

    I wonder if any one can help me out with a query.

    There used to be a couple of clips on youtube of the Original Tuxedo Jazzband in the 1960's (I guess) playing on a TV show.

    One of them was the band playing "Eh la Bas", and needless to say it was sublime.

    Now it has been removed by the user, I would love to be able to trackdown a copy on the internet somewhere.

  8. Your post was quite good than other blogger, so simple yet imformational.

    anyway I'm william
    mind if I put a link back to you?

  9. Hello Friends, There is no video of the Original Tuxedo Orch. I have most of the photographs of this band, and will publish a story of Celestin in Jazz Puzzles volume 2 (together with some others, like Sam Morgan, Armand Piron, Peter Bocage, Sidney Desvignes, Charlie Creath, Fate Marable, Dewey Jackson, Davy Jones, etc.....). Please take a look at
    or contact me at
    Cordially, Dan Vernhettes
