O’s Notes: Trumpeter Derrick Shezbie pays homage to Buddy Bolden, a key figure in the development of ragtime and New Orleans jazz. Shezbie recreates that sound on The Ghost of Buddy Bolden revisiting the early 20th century swing in grand style. Derrick and his NOLA-based band combine the cadence of the church with the rhythm of the blues and the feeling of New Orleans a.k.a. Buddy Bolden to arrive at this energetic tribute that brings yesterday forward.
