      Yvonne,

      They are a Danish/Swedish band that specialises in gospel. I have most of their
      CDs and saw them live in Denmark in 2007 when the singer with them was a
      beautiful black American lasy called Marilyn Keller.

      NOD are a bit Dixieland but Gota River are more strict New Orleans styled

      Traditional jazz is a wonderful thing when it comes to integration as the bands
      have been mixed race from the early days.
