Few cities in the deep South have a musical heritage as rich as that of New Orleans, Louisiana. Recognized by many as the birthplace of jazz (especially Dixieland jazz), the city still resonates with the sounds of live jazz played in live venues all over town. Jazz greats such as Louis Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Prima and Wynton Marsalis all hailed from this area, among many others. However, jazz isn’t the only musical style emanating from the “Big Easy;” rock, rap, R&B and even metal all have strong representation here. Among the other notable musicians with ties to New Orleans: crooner Harry Connick, Jr.; R&B greats the Neville Brothers; rappers Lil Wayne, Lil Romeo and Magic; rock legend Fats Domino; rock band Better Than Ezra, and Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, who recently composed the film score for The Social Network.
Numerous recording studios make their home in New Orleans to accommodate the ongoing musical activity in the area. Whether your interest is in music production, live audio, audio engineering or mixing, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy in New Orleans –and the RECORDING CONNECTION can get you where the action is.
