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."
