So let's get some activity going here.

If someone was interested in Louisiana music, all genre's, what are some "must have" albums they should have in their music collection?

My admittedly small collection consists of, in no particular order:

Doctors, Professors, Kings & Queens, The Big Ol' Box of New Orleans

The Rough Guide To Cajun and Zydeco

The Rough Guide to Cajun Dance

The Rough Guide to Zydeco

Alligator Stomp Cajun and Zydeco Classics, Vol. I and II (I know there's other volumes in the collection.)

Flashback Cajun and Zydeco Classics

Putumayo (World Music) Presents New Orleans

The Very Best of Fats Domino, 1963-1965

Blues Kingpins Fats Domino

Dr. John, N'Awlinz Dis Dat or D'udda

Dr. John The Best of the Parlophone Years

Jazz Moods, Hot: The Dirty Dozen Brass Band

RCA Victor Greatest Hits Series, including "Dixieland", "Louis Armstrong", "Jelly Roll Morton", and "Fats Waller". (I believe they're all from the region...)

So, what else should I have?

current mood: curious

9:30 pm - Hurricane on the Bayou - an IMAX film

cowboyjesus
Thought I'd see if I could perk things up here with a notice that there is an IMAX  film being premiered on August 29th in New Orleans. It features Tab Benoit,  the Cajun Bluesman, who's been working on Voice of the Wetlands for some time now.

Here is the link to his website.

12:58 am - NOLA Art Benefit still looking for artist,bands ect

art2helpnola
I'm X posting this a few places.
Artists Unite To Help New Orleans a project formed by Alicia that growing more and more... artists and musicians from all over are contributing work and bands to raise money, etc etc
They are still looking for more artist,bands ect to donate time or services.
They are especially in need of a accountant,they have to send résumé... they CAN accept college students, as long as they already have a bachelors, or degree of sorts.
They also need someone to make a website as well as servers.
It should be a fairly large event,so you would get some pretty decent publicity for donating your time and services.
If you'd like to help out contact Alicia Angel1181101@aol.com and also more info can be found at the myspace group

holla community. i'm from new york and i've never really visited the south before, besides disney world, but that doesnt count. anyway, i recently visited new orleans and i totally fell in love! one thing i loved about the city was the self-made music that was just, everywhere. so, i bought i zydeco/cajun best-of mix cd at the flea market, and it really reminded me of my good times in louisiana... anyway, i wanna get more into the music, which is why i joined the community.. :)

so what's swamp pop? it has an enticing name, ha... what are some good bands/musicians that fall under this genre that i could try?

thanks!

10:52 am - Where is everyone?

the36thchamber
Looks like no one has posted here in awhile. I just finished reading Jelly's Blues, about Jelly Roll Morton, and thought it was a great book. A little sad, but good. I was wondering if anyone else has read it?

Every year the National Recording Registry chooses to preserve a few sound recordings deemed to be "culturally, historically or aesthetically important, and/or inform or reflect life in the United States."

They just announced this year's list of recordings, and there are a couple Louisiana recordings on the list:

- Amede Ardoin and Dennis McGee. Cajun-Creole Columbia releases. (1929)

- Leadbelly "Goodnight Irene" (1933)

- Jelly Roll Morton. Interviews conducted by Alan Lomax. (1938)

- Huey P. Long. "Every Man a King" speech. (1935) - Not a music recording, but I couldn't resist listing it! ;)

7:49 pm - First post!!

highway61poet
My favorite cajun performer, and the one who really introduced me to cajun music, is Doug Kershaw. I have several of his albums on vinyl, including the amazing Alive and Pickin'. I have not had the pleasure to see him perform live, but Doug is famous for sometimes going through two bows in one song because of his furious playing. The rosin flying off the bow often makes the fiddle seem like it's smoking! I plan on buying Doug's new concert DVD sometime this month.

Windows Media clips
Louisiana Man, his biggest hit.
Jambalaya
Orange Blossom Special. He can wear out a couple bows during this song!
