Released: 8th May 2017 – DOWNLOAD ONLY

New Orleans has always been a magical place when it comes to music.One of the great musical ‘hotbeds’ not just of America but the world! The Creole people: (a mix of French, Spanish, African American and Native Indian) were always going to set the scene when it came to both Jazz and Blues. In fact, New Orleans (aka Crescent City or The Big Easy) is generally credited as the original birthplace of Jazz- before the rest of the country started to sit up and listen.
This unique album takes you on a musical journey from bar to bar, club to club in a unique city whose musical heritage is unrivalled!
