A propelling force of classic New Orleans jazz, the unique experiences that the clarinetist had throughout his career paired with his ability to articulate the significance and timelessness of the music has made him a highly influential voice. Opening the record is “Jambalaya” which was a #1 country music hit when recorded by the famous singer Hank Williams. “The song’s catchy melody makes it perfectly suited to be a traditional jazz instrumental.” White explains. “Midnight Special” is the title track of the 1970s television popular music show and hit recording for the rock group Creedence Clearwater Revival. Original track “Eternally Blue“ is a lush and soulful composition held together by bouncing piano while Janis Joplin’s 1970 hit “Me And Bobby McGee” swings perfectly as an instrumental for both small jazz band and brass band “second line” interpretations. Also in a fresh brass band vein is the rock group The Turtles’ classic 1969 hit “Happy Together.”
