Album Notes
Ah, Mardi Gras! Whether you like to party it up on the streets or prefer a more elegant ballroom setting, there is one thing you just gotta have...MUSIC! And not just any music, either. You need the upbeat, happy music that says "now's the time to let your hair down (gals) or let it all hang out (guys)."

Can't get to New Orleans this time around?

No problem! Mardi Gras Legends by Jazz Forever whisks you away and plants your feet right there in the French quarter. The recording takes you back to the day when Joe Oliver was "King" and Mardi Gras parties were a budding tradition. Mardi Gras legends is a collection of traditional jazz tunes by the likes of King Oliver, James Scott, and Jelly Roll Morton. It's the kind of music that commands you to pull yourself up by the britches and dance your way through life. You can't resist the urge to pop your fingers and pat your feet as the music takes ahold of you and transports you to a happy place.

Thanks to the ten musicians and their leader who comprise Jazz Forever, your happy place is here, and the time is now. Get up and dance. Share the fun. It's time to party.

Jazz Forever features the musicianship of an elite group of musicians from Houston, Texas: George Chase and Eddie Lewis on trumpet, Thomas Hulten on trombone, Doug Wright on clarinet and alto sax, Martin Langford on tenor sax and clarinet, Gary Zuger on baritone sax and clarinet, Mike Owen on banjo, guitar and vocals, Gilbert Sedeno on keys, Thomas Helton on string bass and tuba, and Bobby Adams on drums.

The band is under the leadership of Mr. Ben Pokluda who's dream it was to assemble a team of such fine musicians.
