Sound of New Orleans Record Company


Sound of New Orleans

Bringing Louisiana music to the world.

In 1972, Gary Edwards began Sound Of New Orleans Record Company by recording the Storyville Jazz Band - drummer Bob French, George French on bass and vocals, Ellis Marsalis (piano), Frog Joseph (trombone), Teddy Riley (trumpet), and Otis Bassoon (clarinet). Many critics consider this one of the finest New Orleans Jazz albums ever recorded.


Since his debut production, Gary's desire to produce good recordings has led to a catalogue of albums by artists representing the best of New Orleans musical traditions, ranging from Brass Bands, Blues, Jazz, Gospel, R&B, and Mardi Gras, to the cream of other Louisiana stylists in Zydeco, Cajun music, and Louisiana swamp blues.


The company's guideline has always been to allow the artists to express themselves freely. This freedom sometimes requires more work, but it has also created some very interesting music from an enviable roster of talent including:

The Treme Brass Band, Tommy Ridgley, Eddie Bo, The Bayou Jazz Band, Tara Darnell, Rockin' Dopsie Jr. & The Zydeco Twisters, The Heavenly Stars, Mike Vax, The Algiers Brass Band, The Cor-Hendricks Singers, The Mighty Chariots, Creole Zydeco Farmers, The Bemiss Brothers, The New Orleans Spiritualettes, The High Steppers Brass Band, The Coolbone Brass Band, Harmonica Red, Warren Ceasar & The Creole Zydeco Snap Band, The Adams/Griffin Project, Beau Bassin Cajun Band, Tony Mitchel, The Mahogany Brass Band, David & Roselyn, The Bayou Renegades (Mardi Gras Indians), Steve Giarantano, Frisson Cajun Band, Kipori Woods, The Melody Clouds, L. J. Hamilton, Casa Samba, Steve Franco, Selwin Cooper, G.G. Shinn, Voices of Distinction, J.B. Davis, Veda Love, Rooster, Wayne Boyd, Phat2sday, Charles Jacobs & Bourbon Street Blues Band, Chucky C & Clearly Blue, Carol Fran, Lips & The Trips, Placide Adams, Chewy Thunderfoot Black, Les Getrex, Bill E. Shaw, Eddie Boh Paris & The Funky 7 Brass Band, Charlie Cuccia, The Regal Brass Band, Dwayne Dopsie & The Zydeco Hellraisers, Zion Harmonizers, and The Gospel Dedicators.


Gary Edwards and Sound of New Orleans look forward to even more musical fun in the future, and have adopted the Louisiana motto:

Let The Good Times Roll!
