      List members may be interested to know that Sam Charters has a new
      book out. It's called New Orleans: A Jazz Chorus, and is published by
      Marion Boyars. The publisher's web site describes it as "a highly
      personal portrait of New Orleans and its music today - a city that
      has been hard hit by Katrina, but is managing to keep its great jazz
      tradition, brass band scene, incomparable food, and unique lifestyle
      vital and intact. The book will be published just in time for the
      August 29 first anniversary of the hurricane which changed New
      Orleans completely.
      Among the musicians and groups at the heart of the New Orleans jazz
      scene who make their appearance in this book are:
      The Rebirth Brass Band, Hot 8, The Soul Rebels, The Preservation Hall
      Jazz Band, Johnny Vidacovich, Barry Martyn, Lars Edegran, Chuck
      Badie, Pete Fountain, Michael White, The Hot Club of New Orleans,
      Coco Robicheaux, record company owner George Buck, and the gospel
      musician Billy Edwards.
      The book also presents portraits of every day New Orleans people
      confronting a challenging situation."

      It is, also, at least in part, a memoir of Charters' time in NO in
      the 1950s.
