New Orleans Jazz Brunch – The Alvin Alcorn Trio
$9.99

In the 1920s, a similar version of today’s Jazz Brunch took place when New Orleans families took a train via Elysian Fields Avenue to their beach houses at Lake Pontchartrain and Milneberg. With them they brought their won jazz bands which they would hire for the weekend. Two regular musicians with those trains were Louis Armstrong and Alvin Alcorn. It was not unusual in those days to have 40 or 50 bands playing in a given area at the same time. Most often these bands would play through the night and well into the morning breakfast hour.

Fifty years later, in 1976, when this album was first recorded, Alvin Alcorn still put the “Jazz” in Jazz Brunch. Then playing trumpet for over 50 years, he performed weekends at Commander’s Palace; during the week you might find him at historic Preservation Hall, in New York playing a television special, or even in Europe performing before a king or a president.
