The enduring sound and boundless energy of this American art form have produced a long list of jazz legends. From Lionel Ferbos -- the citys oldest working jazz musician -- to Grammy winner Irvin Mayfield, the musical heritage of traditional jazz lives on through each players passion. In Traditional New Orleans Jazz, veteran jazz journalist Thomas Jacobsen discusses that legacy with Ferbos, Mayfield, and a whos who of the present-day scenes trad jazz players.Through intimate conversations with jazz veterans and up-and-coming talent, Jacobsen elicits honest, witty, and sometimes comedic discussions that reveal a strong mutual devotion to do one thing -- compose and play music inspired by the Crescent Citys earliest jazz musicians.Traditional New Orleans Jazz presents local perspectives on what has become an international language with interviews from Lucien Barbarin, Evan Christopher, Duke Heitger, Leroy Jones, Dr.

Its longevity relies on teaching and innovation, furthering the inextricable ties between the music and the men who make it.
