    A MUST FOR JAZZ AFICIONADOS

    As noted in the Preface, "This book organizes a 100 year span of music according to different eras in the New Orleans jazz scene, starting with the jazz forerunners of the 1890s and ending in the early twenty-first century....."

    And what a book it is - a visual journey over 216 pages filled with archival photos from the Louisiana State Museum's Jazz Collection.

    We begin with a picture of the Original New Orleans Jazz Band, an early Dixieland band. In this photo don't miss the rather odd mute attached to the trombone that changed the instrument's sound. It is noted that in the 1930s New Orleans jazz was becoming known throughout the world, and the next two decades saw millions of people coming to New Orleans to hear this authentic music.

    The final photo is one of Kermit Ruffins, trumpeter, vocalist, and entertainer, who was greatly influenced by Louis Armstrong. In 1992 Ruffins started his own group, The Barbecue Swingers.

    A New Orleans based jazz historian, writer, and radio producer Tom Morgan has compiled a volume that is not only comprehensive but entertaining. You may find more from him on his web site jass.com.

    In addition to being a valuable contribution to the annals of music history and a must for jazz aficionados, for this reader HISTORIC PHOTOS OF NEW ORLEANS JAZZ introduce d musicians who have increased my appreciation and enjoyment of this uniquely American sound.
