Don Ewell (November 14, 1916 – August 9, 1983) was an American jazz stride pianist born in Baltimore, Maryland, perhaps best known for his work with several prominent New Orleans–based musicians such as Sidney Bechet, Kid Ory, George Lewis, George Brunis, Muggsy Spanier and Bunk Johnson. From 1956 to 1962, Ewell was a leading member of the Jack Teagarden band. Following Teagarden’s death Ewell did some European tours, and then moved back to New Orleans and played clubs and hotels there. Following his daughter’s death from cancer and two strokes, Ewell died on August 9, 1983.
