New Orleans clarinetist Dr. Michael White frequently states that his mission is to preserve the traditional music of his home city, which is generally said to be the birthplace of jazz. But preserve doesn’t really do his music justice because the traditional music he and his seven-piece Original Liberty Jazz Band play is thoroughly alive. Dr. White plays the tunes the way he has actually heard people from that era play them, because some were still alive back in the 70s when he began exploring the music. Opening our New Orleans finale will be the Russian River Ramblers a popular local trad jazz band that has played the Healdsburg Jazz Festival many times. Featuring Steve Schaffer and Mark Lightner on trumpet, Charles Moeller on clarinet, John Ray on trombone, Carl Eltz on tuba, Joel Hernandez on guitar, Peter Martin on piano, and Dave Stare on banjo.
