A Music Map of New Orleans Lives - with Creole Jazz Singer John Boutté
It’s a sonic map of New Orleans music from the recording studios and nightclubs to jazz parades. Songs about life on Basin Street and Bourbon Street, to Rampart Street and the lady from la rue Dauphine in the voices of Trombone Shorty, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Ida Cox and Louis Prima. Then, a live session at Marigny Studios with Creole jazz and soul singer John Boutté who grew up in the Tremé neighborhood in a family of ten kids, where singing was a household and street corner pastime.
Said the night wind to the little lamb, please Christmas don’t be late. Yuletide cheer, wondering winterlands and Santaclaustrophobia: music both sacred and secular for the season. “Merry Christmas, Baby!”
