Liner Notes:

Broadway To Bourbon Street, The Original New Orleans Sound

It is seldom that a jazz artist achieves the fame and popularity in the commercial world of music as Pete Fountain has in his rise to fame. Not only has he become a big name, but he is consistent and holds a place on the upper levels of established talent.
Starting in New Orleans, then to the Lawrence Welk Show and from there, a star in his own right. Pete is a great talent and he deserves it all.

We are most fortunate in acquiring these performances of Pete Fountain and doubly so since these are performances from the time he was playing the pure New Orleans jazz.

As you listen, you will hear a tone and quality surpassed by no other artist of equal caliber. A great talent performing great music is our offering to you.
