With a little old, a little new, a little borrowed, and definitely some blue (make that blues), this fun sampler gives us a taste of what makes New Orleans music so special. Bringing together classic artists like Louis Armstrong and Louis Prima, neo-traditionalists including Dr. Michael White and Nicholas Payton, and local favorites Deacon John and Topsy Chapman, as well as the inimitable Dr. John and others, New Orleans displays the mix of jazz, blues, gospel, and R&B that fuels the pleasures of the Big Easy sound. Though the emphasis here is on more traditional strains -- such funky giants as the Meters and the Neville Brothers, not to mention the pioneering New Orleans rock 'n' rollers and soul artists, are to be found elsewhere -- the earthy tones of this homegrown music never sounded so good.
