Take a vacation without leaving home. Bring the sounds of New Orleans home to you.
New Orleans, Louisiana's cultural epicenter, has historically served as a gateway to the mighty Mississippi River for travelers and traders, and as a melting pot for French, Spanish, African, Caribbean and American traditions. Blended from a rare mix of worldly elements, the Big Easy has a style and a sound that's truly unique. For most, New Orleans music means only jazz, R&B, or zydeco, however, this collection offers a welcome introduction to the many musical ingredients that exude the flavor of this magnificent city.
