Ultimate Mardi Gras
This not the Mardi Gras music I grew up with It's ok but the oringal artists is sooooo much better
Great for a Mardi Gras Party
I recently had a murder mystery dinner party with the theme being "Mardi Gras". This collection really gave a nice selection of music that help set the mood. I wanted a mix that didn't have all the same exact sound and beat and this really fit the bill.
Some great Mardi Gras essentials!
If you need some music to get you into the spirit of Mardi Gras, this album has you covered. It has the essential jazzy classics that are typically associated with the holiday and city: The Second Line, Big Chief, Mardi Gras Mambo, They All Asked for You, and quite a few other gems that are just as festive, and a blast to listen to.
It is worthy of note that the one "essential" number that's missing is the original version of "Mardi Gras in New Orleans" by Fats Domino. The version of the song on this album is a great arrangement with its own distinct appeal, but it doesn't hold the iconic status of the original, with its catchy wistled melody and stronger vocals.
Anyway, great album. It helped me rock out to the classics as I walked the streets of New Orleans during Mardi Gras. I'm satisfied with my purchase!
