Catalogue Number
Release Date
September 29, 2014


“For more than ten years Soul Jazz Records have been exploring and documenting the sound of New Orleans Funk. Now they turn their attention to the flipside of this musical coin - New Orleans Soul”, a unique hybrid which blended gospel, blues and jazz and added a pinch of the parade bands and Latinized rhythms that have made New Orleans one of the world’s most unique musical destinations. With this fantastic compilation, Soul Jazz have documented some of the standout performers in the New Orleans soul scene, many of whom were the protégés of producer and local legend Allen Toussaint. From the deep, rich vocals of Aaron Neville, Willie Tee and Robert Parker to the rousing choruses of soul sisters like Irma Thomas, Betty Harris and Jean Knight, this is a comprehensive exploration of a scene worthy of the accolades this renewed attention will no doubt attract.
