Crescent City Rebirth
Crescent City Rebirth (Moovealong 008) is a collection of 14 instrumental songs about New Orleans. Like New Orleans, these are jazz songs and are based on New Orleans' famed "second line" parade rhythms. The songs are a tribute to the spirit and heritage of the Crescent City. Despite Katrina's fury and the problems that followed, New Orleans will always be a large part of the past, present, and future of America's native art form, Jazz. Steve Hall is a multi-instrumentalist (Hammond organ, flugelhorn, and guitar) who loves to compose music. He has been an active professional musician on the West Coast since the 1960's. His group, the Steve Hall Quintet, has two CD's in release and is readying a third recording for late 2009. The CD's have received extensive airplay on NPR and college radio stations in the US and overseas.
