Authentic New Orleans Jazz Funeral
If you have never seen a Jazz funeral then you have missed one of the great cultural peculiarities of New Orleans. This tape has some wonderful old tunes on it such as Down By the Riverside, and When the Saints go Marching In.
New Orleans Piano Professor
Tuts Washington

The Jazz piano music of the great Tuts Washington. Tuts was extremely popular and influential in New Orleans music during the 1930’s and 40’s. A great performer, he was a bit shy about recording and therefore we have very little of his music on tape. This CD was made in the early 1980’s for Rounder Records and shows his variety of Jazz, Blues, and popular tunes. A real wonderful tape from an old New Orleans Piano Professor. Check out Arkansas Blues and Frankie and Johnny as well as other great songs.
James Booker
New Orleans Piano Wizard Live!

A live CD of that great Blues pianist James Booker. Has his famous version of On the Sunny Side of the Street. The CD is worth the cost just for that song alone. A really great album.
