Doctors, Professors, Kings and Queens: The Big Ol' Box of New Orleans takes the music of the Big Easy and puts it in the context of that vibrant city in a way that has never been done before. The four CDs feature more than 80 hitsãold and newãby such artists as Dr. John, Professor Longhair, Louis Armstrong, The Meters, Fats Domino, Buckwheat Zydeco and many others. The result is a spicy gumbo containing all of New Orleans' musical styles and flavors: jazz and blues, Cajun and Zydeco, R&B and funk.


Also included is a gorgeous 84-page book that features essays and sidebars that completely explode the idea of what liner notes can be. They'll take you by the hand through the narrow streets of the Quarter, through the Garden District and up through Bayou St. Johnãimparting the history alongside the colorful legends, while giving an insider's-eye view of the city's great (and notorious) bars and restaurants.
