The Melbourne New Orleans Jazz Band - The Melbourne New Orleans Jazz Band


Weary Blues/Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen/The Entertainer/Nobody's Fault But Mine



The appeal of old, neglected, black musicians from New Orleans was irresistible to those seeking an authenticity in jazz, and hence a very strong New Orleans community developed in Australia. In Melbourne, the Melbourne New Orleans Jazz Band was, plausibly enough, an example of this, as was the Yarra Yarra New Orleans Jazz Band. These two groups enjoyed enormous popularity at the end of the 1950s and during the early 1960s. The Melbourne New Orleans Jazz Band was formed in 1957 and became one of the premier jazz exponents in Melbourne in the late fifties and early sixties. The band left for England and toured the UK and Europe from September 1961 until in disbanded in London in April 1963.



The band released at least 3 EP's in Australia and 1 in the UK
