Big Easy Big Bands traces the untold story of the glorious New Orleans big bands, from the very beginning of jazz, when it was still known as ragtime. It sheds light on the origins of jazz and its makers, and shows how the big bands from the Big Easy always showed the way, from the very start right up to the funky sounds of the 1960s.
