Norrie Cox New Orleans Stompers – Move The Body Over
Delmark DE 231
In England during the 1950’s, ensemble-driven, blues-drenched New Orleans jazz was more popular than Elvis! Steeping themselves in the music of elder jazzmen committed to the style of turn-of-the-century New Orleans music, youngsters such as Norrie Cox (and some American counterparts) bring us the enrgy, the joy and the richness of that era. The New Orleans Stompers is a hand picked group drawn from the best of the revivalists (The Magnolia Jazz Band, The Hall Brothers and others) not reading off old scores but getting inside the music and taking off with them.
