Various Artists

A series of guest star artists pay tribute to New Orleans. Get ready for a soulful mix of rock/blues/jazz & folk. These songs were handpicked by an International song contest based on storytelling, soulfulness and that mysterious quality that makes you lose yourself in a song.

From Juno award winning blues artist Kenny "Blues Boss" Wayne letting loose on Raging Storm, to Jimmy Rip lending his toe tapping acoustic blues on "Playing Hooky" (producer for Jerry Lee Lewis's last album) to Liza Minnelli sideman & jazz artist Johnny Rodgers pulling you in with his lively "Miss Dixie", the cd hops with talent.

You won't believe the "Lynyrd Skynyrd-ish" rocker "Only Thing She Needs" is by a 16yr old blues artist from Louisiana & his 14yr old twin brothers. The siren song "Pretty Marie pays homage to the legendary voodoo queen Marie Laveau. Crawfish Pie is a get up and dance the night away number while the folky Bourbon Street is a fond remembrance of what makes the “South” special.

The Snake Charmers bluesy “Big Big Love” portrays two lovers that could only spring from New Orleans. Domenic Fusca rocks you with his soulful “New Orleans”. Then finish off with the Dylan-esque title track "Love Song to New Orleans". Before you know it you will be wondering what took you so long to visit New Orleans!
