Spirit of New Orleans

(FIN)
New Orleans/trad. jazz

The idea of this Helsinki-quintet, founded in 2001, is to cherish the traditional jazz of New Orleans as it is played in its cradle. Especially they cater to the more obscure pearls of the genre. The band

has two fine albums. The newer one, Some of These Days, features as guests singer Eeppi Ursin and the New Orleans trumpetist Leroy Jones.
