This very special episode takes a deep dive into the history of New Orleans Jazz and features multiple interviews that I did in New Orleans while I was there to see the Rolling Stones and meet Charlie Watts in July, 2019. I was lucky enough to sit down with Stanton Moore and get the full history of Nola Jazz, and also go backstage with Walter Harris and Joe Lastie at Preservation Hall Jazz Club, plus even more information from Greg Lambousy of the Nola Jazz Museum.
New Orleans is one of the few places that can be called the home of Jazz. We cover as much of this history as possible with the help of these four great guests. I also tell the story of why I was in New Orleans and the amazing Rolling Stones experience I had thanks to Don McAulay (Charlie Watts Drum Tech) and the crazy few days I had visiting the city. We end the episode with a great interview with Greg Lambousy about the Drumsville exhibit at the New Orleans Jazz Museum that features tons of amazing pieces of Drum History.
