For more than ten years Soul Jazz Records have been exploring and documenting the sound of New Orleans funk. Now they turn their attention to the flipside of this musical coin - New Orleans soul. Here you will find New Orleans soul in all its glorious variations - from the deep, deep soul of singers Aaron Neville, Willie Tee and Robert Parker to the storming Northern Soul of Maurice Williams and Eldridge Holmes, the funky soul of Eddie Bo, Lionel Robinson and Ernie K-Doe all alongside the Crescent City’s finest soul sisters - Irma Thomas, Betty Harris, Jean Knight, Inell Young and more.
