Tricia Boutté
Ms. Tricia Boutté is one of the most talented young singers in New Orleans. Her visit to the Classic Jazz Festival in Helsinki proved successful -- it was during the visit that these tracks were recorded. For this record, Tricia brings a fresh breath of Crescent City, where her usual activities include fronting gospel choirs and jazz ensembles, singing with r&b bands and even doing backup vocals for rap albums. Her own band, Cool Riddims & Sista Teedy, was elected the Reggae Band of the Year in 1997 by the OffBeat Magazine in New Orleans.

Riverside Rascals,
the orchestra for interesting music, is the youngest of all the Classic Jazz outfits in Finland. During their short history, the Rascals have performed regularly at Storyville (the number on jazz club in Helsinki) as a member of its TOP 10 group. Major landmarks for them include performances at the Ylläs Jazz ('96, '97), April Jazz, Kalotti Jazz, Padas Jazz and Classic Jazz festivals.

The musical roots of Riverside Rascals are based on the rich New Orleans tradition. Their repertoire includes traditional hymns and parade-like street beat numbers as well as dixieland and swing classics. On top of their usual gig routine, they also have special programmes for jazz, gospel and children's concerts. As far as their more recent musical directions, Jamaican-based ska is of special interest.

Riverside Rascals is more than just an orchestra. It is a musical communion, where the opinion of each member is equally important. Their music is about communication between the musicians and the audience. Depending on the performing situation, a tune may greatly vary in form, tempo and character. Because of their vast repertoire, the audience's special needs can quite often be satisfied.
