Jazz Fest Is Over, But the Music Continues

While most of the industrious musicians of New Orleans are sleeping off ten days of multiple gigs, those with regular weekly engagements are still working regardless of how many shows they played over the marathon that is the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.  For a chance to see a player who was a regular local for five years during the early 1980s, head over to Snug Harbor for the Moutin Reunion featuring Rick Margitza.  Margitza is an exceptional saxophonist who performed around town with numerous other modern jazz musicians during that period.  After he left town and moved to New York, his profile increased considerably.  He was a member of Miles Davis’ band and he recorded three albums for the esteemed Blue Note label. The rest of the band is based in Paris and includes Francois Moutin on upright bass, Pierre de Bethmann on piano, and Louis Moutin on drums.  The group also performs tomorrow night at Snug Harbor.
