I have performed many of these songs for more than 30 years with different groups and musicians. The versions on MARIGNY have a definite New Orleans groove with a straightforward vocal style.
Jacques Delatour (producer/recording/mixing) was instrumental in organizing session and lining up this super group of New Orleans musicians. MARIGNY was elevated by Eric Bernhardt’s arrangements, Ian Smith’s trumpet playing and by the vocal stylings of Whitney Alouisious.
MARIGNY my third NOLA music project was recorded December 2021 at Marigny Studios. Previous albums HOLY MOLY (2018) 2ND PASS (2020) are available in hardcopy or digitally.

Recording, mixing, and mastering 2ND PASS is my second music project in New Orleans. The recording session was in August 2019 at the Music Shed Studio.
Jacques Delatour (producing, recording, mixing) was instrumental in putting together this second studio session and in hand- pick ing a great group of professional New Orleans musicians that he has worked with over the years. In large part I've been able to produce this record because of the talented and dedicated musicians and engineers this city attracts. The quality of 2ND PASS was dramatically elevated by Ejric Bernhardt’s playing and arranging and by Whitney Alouisious’s added vocals on four tracks.
I’ve performed a few of these songs for more than 30 years with different groups and musicians. The versions of the songs on 2ND PASS have a definite New Orleans groove with a straightforward vocal style.
In NOLA I connected with audio engineers Jacques DeLatour and Clay Smith and they were able to save, transfer, and enhance the original live cassette tape recordings from the State Street Band circa 1981 and SAILCAT circa 1976. It was a pleasure to meet and work with them and the sound quality is greatly improved. A few more of these tracks are posted on YouTube.
