Part of the allure of Ted Lewis’ music is that it is so varied as to be virtually impossible to classify. While difficult to place in terms of genre, the music was always impeccably played, yet also uncomplicated and full of enthusiasm and humor. In a 1924 issue of Variety magazine, Lewis was described in the following way: His jazz is of the lowest and ‘meanest’ order, and his reversion to the elementary is all the more refreshing. Lewis whistles, Lewis sings, Lewis toots a cruel clarinet and blows a melodious sax; but chiefly Lewis is Ted Lewis, a poseur, a strutter, a jazz hound, a showman. Always the non-conformist, he very rarely followed the prevalent musical fashion. Instead he relied on his own personality and showmanship, enhanced by a very competent band capable of playing some enduring jazz.
