New Orleans Piano Night - Listen for Free

It seems I make this announcement every year, but I think it's really worthwhile. Bear in mind that the music of New Orleans holds a special place in my heart, and that New Orleans PIANO music is the best there is.

Which brings me to the subject of "Piano Night" in New Orleans. This is an annual event which brings together most of the top New Orleans style piano players in the world.

Perhaps the best known living New Orleans pianist remains Dr. John (Mac Rebennac). But there are many others. This year's lineup features Ellis Marsalis (Wynton's father), Jon Cleary, Davell Crawford, John Gros, and Marcia Ball. This event is held in conjunction with the annual New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. This year piano night will be held at the New Orleans House of Blues on Monday, April 28. Things usually start around 7 pm local time (or 8 on the east coast and 5 on the west coast).

Ticket prices start at $87 and go as high as $314. But even if you won't be in New Orleans to catch this show, you can hear it for free by tuning in to WWOZ.org on the web. The radio station broadcasts Piano Night every year. And they play New Orleans music every day 24/7. If you like it and use it, send them a donation.

Now if you want to hear a sample of the New Orleans style of rhythm and blues, here's a clip of a band that I'm in, playing the music I love. That's me on piano, of course. If you view this on YouTube, I'd appreciate getting a comment.
