ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Though this music is new and fresh, the Storyville Stringband is loosely modeled after the bands that played around New Orleans 100 years ago at the dawn of the Jazz era, around the time Louis Armstrong was growing up. Like the New Orleans jazz bands at the time (that featured trumpets, trombones, clarinets, and drums) the Storyville Stringband performances are a collective improvisation built on the foundation provided by an acoustic string bass. Other instrumentation includes a National steel (Hawaiian) guitar, violin, mandolin, mandolin/banjo, banjo, tenor guitar, rhythm guitar.
All of the players in the band are veteran string players of New Orleans jazz having performed around New Orleans and the world for decades. (And, we're all alive and well ready to perform in your hometown or festival!.)
The songs on My Bayou Home, the second CD from the Storyville Stringband, include 11 original compositions by Seva Venet all deeply rooted in the heritage of New Orleans music. New Orleans deep historic connection to the Caribbean is celebrated with 3 songs utilizing different latin rhythms with Afro/Caribbean origins including the clave and the Cinquillo. The other original works on the CD capture elements of Ragtime composition, Jelly Roll Morton, New Orleans 2nd-line (parade) music, Mardi Gras music, and there is also a waltz for dancers.
Of the three non-original songs on the CD are an old-time Traditional New Orleans Jazz number, with a spirited vocal, and two Hawaiian Songs celebrating the connection between New Orleans Jazz and Hawaiian music pre-1950.
