The Rough Guide to the Music of New Orleans

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
From the 19th century African music gatherings in Congo Square to the birth of jazz and its offshoots, New Orleans is one of America's most important music cities, and with the Rough Guide to the Music of New Orleans collection, listeners get a well-rounded taste of the Crescent City's musical gumbo.

All Music Guide
From the 19th century African music gatherings in Congo Square to the birth of jazz and its offshoots, New Orleans is one of America's most important music cities, and with the Rough Guide to the Music of New Orleans collection, listeners get a well-rounded taste of the Crescent City's musical gumbo.

While it's impossible to capture the full spectrum of New Orleans music on a single disc -- women artists are underrepresented, and the NOLA hip-hop scene that's emerged since the 1990s is skipped entirely -- this Rough Guide is a spirited introduction, and as a bonus is accompanied by a second disc featuring emerging heavy funk purveyors Dumpstaphunk. ~ Chrysta Cherrie
