Jambalaya - The New Orleans Jazz Wizards
If you have spent any time in New Orleans you understand that jazz is simply everything about the town translated into music - joy, sadness, pleasure and pain. It is a clarinet or saxophone laying down broad strokes of background colour and the trombone splattering light about the edges as the trumpet alights on the melody. All that with a rhythm section. A really fine rhythm section! This recording stands out because the musicians believe in it. They are dedicated to it.
The New Orleans Jazz Wizards are Lionel Ferbos trumpet and vocals, Pud Brown clarinet and saxophone, Lester Caliste trombone, Les Muscutt banjo and guitar, Peter Badie bass and vocals, Ernie Elly drums.
