Description

Join us on Friday, January 26 for A Tribute to Kid Ory by The On the Levee Jazz Band. Tickets are only $6.00, available at the door (cash) or online.

The On the Levee Jazz Band plays the music of New Orleans' own Kid Ory and his Creole Jazz Band.

Edward "Kid" Ory was one of the best-known and most highly-regarded trombonists to emerge from New Orleans. He developed the "tailgate" style of trombone playing as a young man. Ory's youthful appearance and engaging personality resulted in the nickname "Kid." He led one of the most popular bands in New Orleans, and featured many of the great musicians who would go on to define the Hot Jazz style.

With an intimate knowledge of and respect for Ory’s attention to dynamics, danceable tempos, and swinging rhythm, drummer Hal Smith's On the Levee Jazz Band features trombonist Clint Baker and New Orleans' finest jazz musicians.

Featuring:
Clint Baker - trombone
Ben Polcer - trumpet
Joe Goldberg - clarinet
Kris Tokarski - piano
Alex Belhaj - guitar
Joshua Gouzy - upright bass
Hal Smith - drums, leader

Presented by the New Orleans Jazz Museum.
