Here is an interesting artist that's new to me, and I wanted to share his music.

Jon Batiste is a musician Rok just introduced me to. From the first notes he played, I knew he was from Louisiana, with out knowing anything else about him.

Here's his bio

This is the tune Rok submitted;

It was one I will eagerly add to my collection. I thought I would share this with other music lovers seeking new artists.
Enjoyed the Papa Mali and Redbone chant. Got to be in the mood for it though.  

If you like the Neville Brothers you'll probably like the Subdudes. Bought the CD for their name and really enjoyed the music.
I'm sure everyone has seen this, but if not, look up Ken Burns Jazz on Amazon prime. They spend a lot of time in NOLA, since it's the birthplace and all. Great history lesson on jazz, most of it from early on.
So I see people harping on Wynton, but I didn’t catch anyone mentioning his talented brother Delfeayo Marsalis (sp?). I’ve enjoyed listening to him and his band play at Snug Harbir In NO; a fine talent. Not to people’s tastes here?
