New Orleans Jazz Band

New Orleans, the birthplace of not just jazz band music, but the melting pot for so much modern music. A New Orleans Jazz Band means so many things to different people. To some it is Dr John, with his rough gravelly voice and rolling piano style. To others it is the sound of Louis Armstrong’s astonishing trumpet, wailing over a band.

Then it could be Fats Domino performing with his band. One of his many hits such as “I’m Walkin” and “Blueberry Hill”. To others it’s the vision of a group of mourners walking behind a coffin, during a jazz funeral, with a slow deferential hymn being played by a New Orleans Funeral Jazz Band. Then, what about the funky sounds of the Neville Brothers? The Swamp Dogs New Orleans Jazz Band try to cover as many aspects of the music as is possible. Here they are below in an acoustic, unplugged guise playing vintage jazz. A great jazz band for a wedding. See New Orleans Street Band and New Orleans Brass Band.

One thing for sure, there is an astonishing amount of variety of music over a great number of years, going back to the time of Buddy Bolden and Jelly Roll Morton. 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. Audiences love the exotic nature of the music. With that in mind visit our other musical services page.

Miles Davis, himself an innovative trumpet player and composer, once said “There’s nothing that anyone plays today that Louis Armstrong hasn’t already played long before” Louis Armstrong was something of a genius. He almost invented a musical genre, single handed, from the musical influences he absorbed as a youngster in New Orleans.

Born at the turn of the century to a prostitute, with a grandmother who had been a slave, Louis Armstrong rose above his early setbacks to become one of the most respected, creative and influential musicians of the twentieth century. He continues to influence musicians. Certainly there is not a member of the Mississippi Swamp Dogs who has not benefitted from listening to Pop’s music.
