New Orleans

New Orleans is where jazz began and the first jazz recording was made in 1917. The city’s music has evolved in many exciting directions but still remains an extraordinary melting pot of musical styles and great players. Its one of the most vibrant places for jazz and blues today. In 2017, we present over 30 concerts featuring New Orleans.
