Within the confines of Congo Square, on the outskirts of the French

Quarter, jazz was born. A celebration of music and a melting pot of

cultural influence, jazz soon spread throughout Crescent City. Percussive

counter-melodies, raucous glissandi, and joyous growls from a tailgatetrombone

were often the harbinger of an incoming parade. And in the

bayou, parades are plentiful! Trombonist and Winnipeg expatriate

Chris Butcher and trombonist Al Kay from Humber College in Toronto join the WJO for our season opener.
