Evan Christopher & Clarinet Road: Farewell to Storyville

This year, 2017, was the centenary of the closing of the Storyville red-light district. Sure, the impact of "The District" (1897-1917) on the evolution of "jazz" is arguably dubious, but the musicians from that era transformed the popular music of their day with virtuosity, and highly individual style.

For this special recital hosted by the New Orleans Jazz Museum at the Old U.S. Mint, Evan Christopher & Clarinet Road will transform repertoire from the traditional New Orleans canon with special attention on the contributions of Jelly-Roll Morton.

Tickets are $15.75 in advance, $21.00 at the door.
