The tricentennial of New Orleans was the perfect time to reflect on the culturally rich city’s most important original artistic contribution: jazz. Acclaimed clarinetist Dr. Michael White sets out to do just that on this release, featuring a “gumbo pot” of song ideas, all of which are originals save the famous “When The Saints Go Marching In,” that span in style from the earliest jazz with Jelly Roll Morton-inspired tunes to songs like the title track “Tricentennial Rag” which stands in a category of its own as a “modern” 21st century rag.
