Blind Boys of Alabama
Two icons of the American cultural landscape will join forces to release Down In New OrleansBlind Boys of Alabama, Grammy-winning gospel favorites for over six decades, and Time Life, the world's largest direct marketers of audio and video products.

Recorded in New Orleans at Piety Street Studios with a stellar cast of local artists, Down In New Orleans demonstrates how Crescent City soul, so deeply influenced by gospel music, can in return invigorate traditional classics. The CD is anchored by a trio of world-class New Orleans' musicians (David Torkanowsky, Roland Guerin and Shannon Powell) and includes guest appearances by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Allen Toussaint and the Hot 8 Brass Band. A special music preview event is set for September 30 at Preservation Hall from 6-8 p.m. with The Blind Boys and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
