A JAZZ GUMBO - Volume 1 - Various Artists

 A JAZZ GUMBO - Volume 1 - Various Artists
CD / Product Number: JCCD3004

Gumbo is a traditional New Orleans soup containing many individual ingredients which mix into a spicy, well-seasoned and vigorous whole, and this is musically what we have here. The recordings were made during the 1993 French Quarter Jazz Festival and Bill has taken 18 local and visiting musicians in various combinations to produce a blend of authentic New Orleans jazz.

Bissonnette's newest project found him in New Orleans gathering together a variety of musicians for recordings that affirmatively the question, 'Is there any New Orleans jazz left in New Orleans?' A Jazz Gumbo features 18 musicians most of whom, other than Bissonnette himself and clarinetist - altoist Sammy Rimington, are obscure if not completely unknown ……. Overall, this is one of the more exciting New Orleans jazz releases of 1993.
Scot Yanow, West Coast Rag – USA
