With a couple of centuries of experience between them and repeated appearances at the Jazz and Heritage Festival, it's surprising that Down in New Orleans marks the first time The Blind Boys have ever recorded in the Crescent City. Backed by a loose-limbed trio of locals (David Torkanowsky on piano, Roland Guerin on bass, and Shannon Powell on drums), the Boys welcome guests including Allen Toussaint, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and The Hot 8 Brass Band.
