Dr. Music | Fairhope's Record Store since 1996

The music on this album is a fine example of jazzmen from different cultures and countries integrating and proving that the spirit of authentic New Orleans music still survives. The key figures, both black New Orleanians, have done much to keep their native music in it's original form on the map. Gregg Stafford and Michael White were in The Fairview Baptist Church Marching Band so spirituals and blues would come naturally to both of them as this album shows. They represent the later generation of New Orleans musicians who grew up influenced by the revered veterans who inhabited Preservation Hall.
