  • Great to see an independent music store still thriving. As one would expect in Nola, they focus on jazz and have built a niche in state and local bands. Knowledgeable staff help you decide what to select. Besides music on CD and vinyl, they also sell great music t shirts, posters and sheet music. There is also a great selection of used CDs of every genre.
  • Incredible place to find local music! Brass bands, Dixie, Cajun, Zydeco, Delta Blues... I got out from here with like 15 vinyl records, and I whished I could have bought more and more. The crew is really nice, always ready to help and to give a good advice. Not a big selection of secondhand, but a lot of great records.
