Born in 1884, "Papa" Celestin was active in New Orleans music before it was known as jazz. He was famous for being a visually entertaining bandleader. This clip was made near the end of his life, when the New Orleans Jazz revival gave his carrer a late lift. It is taken from the film "Cinerama Holiday", released in 1955, made to demonstrate the possibilities of a sort of surround vision cinema system.
