Soul Jazz Records' second volume of New Orleans Funk carries off exactly where the last one left off. With Ernie K Doe's "Here Come The Girls" riding high in the UK charts at Xmas thanks to a Boots ad (and featured on New Orleans Funk Vol. 1), this timely new collection brings together another 26 sure-fire funky New Orleans classics and rarities (which now fetch hundreds of pounds!).
Featuring everyone from The Meters to Eddie Bo, Lee Dorsey to Betty Harris, this is a who's who of Windy City's most famous and most funky!
Mixing Funk, Soul, Latin and Jazz elements, New Orleans Funk is a unique combination of styles that draw on the unique culture of the city - Mardi Gras Indians, Saturday Night Fish Fries, The Second Line Strut.
The album comes with extensive sleeve-notes, exclusive photography and more, this is an essential guide to the musical landscape of New Orleans and together with Soul Jazz Records' earlier New Orleans' releases presents the definitive story of New Orleans Funk.
