New Orleans is a superb collection of musical treasures that embody the spirit and charm of this most colorful city. The musical traditions that New Orleans has nurtured are legendary, but music is not just the stuff of legend there. In the city’s streets, it is a vibrant, ever-evolving art form. New artists regularly learn from their predecessors, and inject those lessons with fresh energy and ideas. The traditional jazz and blues on this wonderful CD feature a broad spectrum of styles in forms both old and new. This CD makes you feel great. The liner notes are great, written by New Orleans musicologist Baty Landis, and they are in English, French, and Spanish. There are also photographs by respected New Orleans photographer Micheal Smith. There's even a recipe for seafood gumbo by renowned chef Paul Prudhomme!
