Spirit of New Orleans
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.
