Synopsis:
This is a song filled tribute to New Orleans the town where jazz was bom, performed by its greatest proponents. Arturo De Cordova plays Nick, the owner of a Bourbon street gambling joint who after falling in love with a socialite (Dorothy Patrick) wishes to raise his respectability and begins a campaign to thrust the disreputable music known as jazz onto the mainstream American stage. The film features over nine classic musical numbers including The Armstrong All Stars A Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday duet "The Blues Are Brewin'' and rare solos by Kid Ory and Barney Bigard.
Featured songs "Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans", "Endie", " Beagle Street Blues", " Tiger Rag", "Honky Tonk Train Blues", " King Porter Stomp" and many others. A long overdue addition to the cannon of classic jazz films.
