Within the confines of Congo Square, on the outskirts of the French
Quarter, jazz was born. A celebration of music, and a melting pot of
cultural influence, jazz soon spread throughout Crescent City. Percussive counter-melodies, raucous glissandi, and joyous growls from a tailgate-trombone were often the harbinger of an incoming parade. And in the bayou, parades are plentiful! Trombonist and Winnipeg expatriate Chris Butcher joins the WJO for our season opener.
