Note From Dada!
Κάπως έτσι θα κυλήσει στην αρχή το αφιέρωμα...δηλαδή πιο απλά, εκτός του μουσικού άξονα θα κινηθούμε και με γεωγραφικό. Μετά το Chicago μια βόλτα στη Νέα Ορλεάνη με μια απ' τις καλύτερες συλλογές τις Soul Jazz Records. Επίσης πολύ καλό και κατατοπιστικό το 20σέλιδο βιβλιαράκι που βρίσκεται στα links.

About New Orleans Soul
The New Orleans soul scene directly came out of the rhythm and blues era, when such artists as Little Richard, Fats Domino, and Huey Piano Smith made a huge impact on the pop and R&B charts and a huge directly influence for the birth of the Funk music . The principal architect of Crescent City’s soul was songwriter, arranger, and producer Allen Toussaint. He worked with such artists as Irma Thomas (“the Soul Queen of New Orleans”), Jessie Hill, Kris Kenner, Benny Spellman, and Ernie K. Doe on the Minit/Instant label complex to produced a distinctive New Orleans soul sound generating a passel of national hits. Other notable New Orleans hits came from Robert Parker, Betty Harris, and Aaron Neville. While record labels in New Orleans largely disappeared by the mid-1960s, producers in the city continued to record New Orleans soul artists for other mainly New York and Los Angeles record labels—notably Lee Dorsey for New York-based Amy Records and the Meters for New York-based Josie and then LA-based Reprise.
