The Fundació Privada Catalana Jazz Clàssic, whose objectives are the preservation and popularization of the jazz patrimony, held its first public act on March 21 2006. It was a concert by The Spirit of New Orleans band, with true New Orleans musicians. One of the objectives was to help these musicians, who were in dire difficulties after the devastation brought by the hurricane Kathrina. The second objective was to provide jazz fans with a taste of the real thing, the jazz that is produced nowadays in the city where the style was born.
In this live-recorded CD, the high quality of the band and the purity of their style can be greatly appreciated. The band is led by young trumpet soloist Mark Braud. Beside him, we find clarinettist Evan Christopher, and Lucien Barbarin, who brings in the tailgate flavor from the Delta players, at the trombone. In the rhythmic section there is pianist Steve Pistorius, following the steps of Jelly Roll Morton; Rob Espino, who gives the exotic twist with his tuba; the solid swinging double bass player, Walter Payton; and Gerald French, providing us with the so much needed typical New Orleans jazz style drumming. A genuine band, with musicians who express themselves in the same idiom. They demonstrate a creative spontaneous spirit, which is one of the main characteristics that gives jazz its unmistakable attraction. We can definitely say that the musical flame of New Orleans is still burning in this band and that the Spirit of New Orleans is still alive.

El día 21 de Marzo de 2006 la Fundació Privada Catalana Jazz Clàssic, dedicada a la preservación y difusión del patrimonio jazzístico, celebró en Barcelona su primer acto público con un concierto a cargo de la orquesta The Spirit of New Orleans, integrada por músicos de aquella ciudad, con el objetivo de acercarnos el jazz más genuino que hoy se hace en la ciudad que lo vio nacer y de paso ayudar a unos músicos que, después de la devastación provocada por el huracán Kathrina, se encuentran en serias dificultades.
Grabado durante el concierto, en este CD se puede comprobar la calidad y la pureza de estilo de esta orquesta. Liderada por el joven trompetista Mark Braud, con el clarinetista Evan Christopher, y la imaginación de Lucien Barbarie, que aporta todo el sabor tailgate de los trombonistas de su ciudad. En la sección rítmica encontramos al pianista Steve Pistorius, seguidor de Jelly Roll Morton, Rob Espino, dando un toque pintoresco con la tuba, el sólido contrabajo de Walter Payton y el batería Gerald French luciendo la pulsación típica del estilo. Una verdadera orquesta, con músicos que, por encima de todo, demuestran el espíritu de creación colectiva y espontánea inconfundible del estilo original. Con la música de este grupo, la llama musical de New Orleans sigue encendida.
