Nonesuch Records is releasing a benefit album of newly recorded songs featuring artists from the New Orleans music community – across a wide variety of styles – to document the depth, richness and profound musicality of that unique city. Funds from the sale of the record, titled Our New Orleans, will be donated to Habitat For Humanity to aid those affected by the recent Hurricane Katrina disaster.

A number of New Orleans’ best known musicians have been asked to record songs that are integral to their lives and that express their feelings about the city and the recent events there. Sessions began in New York on September 20, with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the Wild Magnolias recording at Clinton Studios. Later the same day and on September 21, Allen Toussaint, Irma Thomas and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band recorded at New York’s Avatar Studios. Further sessions in October included Dr. John, Buckwheat Zydeco, and Randy Newman, among others.

Nonesuch’s parent company – Warner Bros. Records – is donating all of the production costs for this record, as part of the Warner Music Group’s larger efforts on behalf of the hurricane victims. Many others involved in the project are also generously donating their time and services.

Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Beautifully packaged and lovingly compiled, OUR NEW ORLEANS presents a set of songs recorded in September and October of 2005, shortly after Lake Ponchartrain flooded New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. With the destruction of their beloved hometown fresh in their minds, Crescent City artists such as Allen Toussaint, Dr. John, and Irma Thomas set about making music that directly acknowledges the iconic city, making for an emotional tribute. The mood on OUR NEW ORLEANS is predominantly hopeful, uplifting, and, of course, funky, with Toussaint's new groove-laden rendition of "Yes We Can Can" exemplifying this thoughtful and enjoyable record. All proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity.

Producer: Robert Hurwitz (Compilation); David Bither (Compilation)

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (No. 851, p.99)
- "...The album serves as a gratifying reminder of how valid New Orleans' artistic cotributions were, and are--and why the city and its peole deserve to be saved." - Grade: B

Mojo (Publisher)
(p.95)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "Trad jazz emanates from Dr. Michael White and the Preservation Hall regulars, while lesser-knowns like Davell Crawford and blues veteran Carol Frank almost steal the show."
