Album Notes
Voted "Best Traditional Jazz Album of 2011" by the readers of OffBeat Magazine.

"On “Frenchmen Street Parade,” their third full-length CD, the New Orleans Moonshiners do what they do best: Swing out on spry, light-on-its-feet traditional jazz, a mix of original compositions and hundred-year-old standards. “Frenchmen Street Parade” features six originals by Chris Edmunds, the band’s banjoist/guitarist, including the title track. Elsewhere, the ensemble of stringed instruments, upright bass, drums, clarinet, trombone, cornet, trumpet and various guest vocalists scoots through “K&B Rag,” named in honor of the defunct drugstore chain. Edmunds wrote the sly ballad “I Wish I Had Two of You” in the classic jazz style; a plunger trombone solo brings it home."
--From Keith Spera of the Times Picayune

Another review of this CD from swing dancer extraordinaire, Peter Loggins:


to write a review


great stuff!
This group has some serious talent. Great vocals, and great supporting instruments. I'm not from new orleans, and don't have much experience with swing jazz, or traditional jazz, but highly recommend this group and this cd. They are going places. I'm looking forward to enjoying this cd for a long time to come.
