V.A. 'New Orleans Funk Vol. 2'  3-LP


This is Soul Jazz Records' new journey into the heart of New Orleans and a guide to the city's finest Funk music produced in the late 1960s and early 1970s: this is a who’s who of the Crescent City’s most famous and most funky!
New Orleans has deep musical roots that stretch back to Africa. New Orleans first gave birth to Jazz music; in the late 1960s New Orleans Funk came to define a unique sound, mixing Caribbean rhythms, New Orleans second-line syncopation and rhythm and blues. Whilst Jazz and Funk music spread throughout the world, many African-American musical traditions remained within the city limits such as Mardi Gras and Carnival, Saturday Night Fish Fries, Funeral Marching bands and much more which partly explains why New Orleans music is so unique. This tripple vinyl set comes with extensive sleeve-notes, exclusive photography and more, and 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!
