A benefit record, all songs recorded new for this album. Net proceeds will be donated to Habitat for Humanity to aid those affected by Hurricane Katrina. Jewel case in a cardboard slipcase. CD) ℗ 2005 Nonesuch Records In. a Warner Music Group company.

Several benefit albums have been released in the wake of Hurricane Katrina's landfall in New Orleans on August 29, 2005, and most - if not all - of them have been fine and well-intentioned affairs, full of the spirited and lively music that has long made the Crescent City special. Song after song on Our New Orleans exhibits an elegiac awareness of what has been lost and the difficult decisions and tasks that are yet to come. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band's version of "Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans," a song that was written for the 1947 film New Orleans and had since become a kind of cheesy tourist staple, reclaims the heart of the tune and returns it to its status as a gloriously beautiful love song for an amazing city, a city.

Louis Armstrong & Billie Holiday. New Orleans soundtrack. Armstrong's rendition of the song was also the theme song for the TV series Frank's Place. Connick also performed the song with Wynton Marsalis during a 2005 televised benefit concert for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Of the pair, Our New Orleans has the edge, boasting 16 new tracks swiftly recorded by Crescent City artists. As such it's a snapshot of the city's music as it lives and breathes, encompassing veterans such as Allen Toussaint, Dr John and Irma Thomas, whose vocals on 'Back Water Blues' hit a point of real heartache. Buckwheat Zydeco's 'Cryin' in the Streets' and Randy Newman's poignant 'Louisiana 1927' are almost as wrenching.

Our New Orleans: A Benefit Album for the Gulf Coast is an album which presents songs recorded in September and October 2005, shortly after the failure of misdesigned levees flooded New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina (see: Effect of Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans) With the destruction of their hometown fresh in their minds, New Orleans artists set about making music that directly acknowledges the city.

Though this fall's collection of New Orleans-themed benefits tends to fit the definition of "not a bad one in the bunch," Our New Orleans 2005, A Benefit Album ( 1/2 ) is a particularly classy endeavor, filled with an authentic, if weary, grace. Built of mostly newly recorded traditionals from authentic and/or native Louisianans - Allen Toussaint, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Irma Thomas and the like - Our New Orleans is an elegiac and sweeping ride through the broken city and a testament to its marquee billing in the American musical landscape.
