About the book:

"Up from the Cradle of Jazz" is an intimate history of New Orleans music during the last 45 years. It describes the piano playing of Fats Domino, Professor Longhair, James Booker, Huey "Piano" Smith and Dr John; the singing of Irma Thomas, Little Richard, Aaron Neville and Lee Dorsey; the compositions and performances of Allen Toussaint, Guitar Slim, Wynton and Branford Marsalis, The Meters and The Neville Brothers. From smoky bars and nightclubs to the open air revelry of Mardi Gras, this work aims to be the definitive story of the music of contemporary New Orleans. Jason Berry is the author of "Amazing Grace: with Charles Evers in Mississippi"; Jonathan Foose, a musician and producer, co-produced, with Berry, the television documentary of the same title as this book, and Tad Jones is a researcher at Tulane University.
