DigitalSoundboard.net, an online music store that sells live performance recordings via downloads, announced that it has released recordings from select late night sessions during New Orleans’ Jazz & Heritage Festival 2006. For the first time, the company recorded performances that happen outside of the Fair Grounds Race Track and in the clubs of New Orleans during the festival. Once the gates close at the Fair Grounds each evening, the New Orleans night heats up with bands performing at various hot spots around town.
Purchases of these select sessions will help the New Orleans based musicians featured in DigitalSoundboard.net’s NOLA Late Nite Sessions presentation in their time of need.
The new releases feature Bonerama with Leo Nocentelli, The New Orleans Allstars, two trio sessions—one from the Maple Leaf and another recorded at Le Bon Temp Roule, the third annual Jamakazi, MG5 (formerly Frequinox), Porter-Batiste-Stoltz with Skerik, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Papa Mali, The Stanton Moore Trio, Walter “Wolfman” Washington, Runnin’ Pardners and more.
This collection features George Porter Jr. of The Meters and Funky Meters, Russell Batiste and Brian Stoltz of The Funky Meters, Ian and Ivan Neville, Stanton Moore of Galactic, Robert Walter of the Greyboy Allstars and numerous side projects, Theresa Andersson, drummer Johnny Vidacovich, trombone players Mark Mullins and Craig Klein from Harry Connick Jr’s band, guitar impresario June Yamagishi, singer Leslie Smith, New Orleans’ honorable Walter “Wolfman” Washington and many more.
In addition to the full-length live performance recordings available for purchase as downloads and via mail order, DigitalSoundboard.net has also released select tracks from each recording for free via their Podcast service.
