Charlie Halloran and the Quality 6
"""Traditional jazz is alive and well in today's New Orleans, and Charlie Halloran & the Quality 6 are some of the top purveyors. Released in November, their self-titled album is deeply steeped in tradition and that special New Orleans sound. The group is led by trombonist Charlie Halloran, a man about town-- in addition to his own project, Halloran also plays trombone with Jimbo Mathus's Squirrel Nut Zippers, Meschiya Lake & the Little Big Horns, the Palmetto Bug Stompers, Panorama Jazz band, and the Shotgun Jazz Band. To keep his schedule a little fuller, he also has been known to stand up with Tuba Skinny and The Preservation Hall All-Stars. Joining him is Charlie Fardella on trumpet, Tim Laughlin on clarinet, Steve Pistorius on piano, Tom Saunders on bass, Walter Harris on drums, and Jimbo Mathus on vocals."" -WWOZ"
