Sort order. Mar 07, Terri rated it it was amazing. This was a very informative and enjoyable book and we both learned a lot about the history of Jazz in New Orleans during the 50's through the early 's. What I especially liked about the book is that all the musicians are contemporaries and so the interviews all wove together, with the interviewees often mentioning other interviewees in their own stories.
It was great to read interviews with familiar names and also to learn so many new ones - I really liked that this was a mix of names that were familiar and unfamiliar. The updated foreward to each interview and the notes on Katrina's impact on each museum was especially emotional and impactful.
Overall, a really great book that I really enjoyed.

Houston carried the melody, wagging the soprano sax up and down, as if he were drawing oxygen from the long tube rather than blowing into it. The song is based on the chord changes of an old Negro spiritual and forms a meditation on yearning so intense it verges on tranquility. It went on for about five minutes, and when it ended, several people in the room were crying. OffBeat Magazine by Geraldine Wycoff, I went to hear Reggie Houston play that night….
At the bandstand, Reggie played with a greater intensity than usual.

At the other end of the room, the endless loops of devastation played on CNN. Reggie provided the soundtrack. The spirit of New Orleans will win this battle.
Reggie showed me that Tuesday night. I dropped everything because I saw Reggie Houston marching and playing with the Storyville Stompers, led by a Social Aid and Pleasure Club, and followed by second-liners. I got in line.

He has given back to the community both here and in New Orleans more than we can thank him for, not only as a musician but as a teacher and inspiration to other musicians and students.
