A series of New Orleans- related band pictures, from the Louisiana Digital Library:
Buddy Bolden's Band, with Buddy 2nd from right, standing. I've seen this photograph printed the opposite way as well: no one seems to know which way is correct. Half the instruments are held backwards in both versions.
Louis Prima's Band. Prima is on the left

I'm With The Band

Semi-related to the pictures, I don't know if you heard about the new film about Louis Armstrong?
It is a silent film and Wynton Marsalis and members of the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra provide the soundtrack.
The film has been touring with the band playing live to accompany the film. It played at the Strathmore in Bethesda a few weekends ago (sadly I missed it).
The unknown brass band is Henry Allen's, father of "Red", also visible in the left corner. Cheers
