New Orleans, the birthplace of  jazz band music, and also the melting pot for so much modern music. A New Orleans Jazz Band means so many things to different people. To some it’s Dr John, with his rough gravelly voice, rolling piano style and laid back delivery. Others conjure up the sound of Louis Armstrong’s astonishing trumpet, wailing over a band. Maybe Fats Domino performing with his band one of his many hits such as “I’m Walkin” and “Blueberry Hill”. Others think of a group of mourners walking behind a coffin, attending a jazz funeral, with a slow, sad hymn played by a New Orleans Funeral Jazz Band.

Here is some more information on New Orleans Music, it’s development and it’s practitioners. The earliest mentions have always gone to Buddy Bolden the mythical trumpet player who was never recorded. The we have Jelly Roll Morton who would sell and market himself by bragging of his own stunning abilities! The combination of cultural influences from the many peoples who ended up in New Orleans including Spanish, African, French and Scottish helped create the music we know today as jazz.

From there the music developed a number of tendrils that marched out from home to over the U.S.A. over the next 50 or 60 years: Rock and Roll, Rhythm and Blues, Boogie, Soul, Funk, Cajun and Gospel. Here is some amazing history on New Orleans band, the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, who appeared at the Hammersmith Palais in the early twenties!!
