Making Noise at the Jazz Market

Late February saw the groundbreaking of the New Orleans Jazz Market, a joint project of Grammy-winning trumpeter Irvin Mayfield and The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra in Central City at the intersection of Oretha Castle Haley and Martin Luther King boulevards.

Partnering with the University of New Orleans and the New Orleans Jazz Institute, the Jazz Market will host performance presentations, senior citizen activities, special events, a developing archive of jazz recordings, big-band concerts and education initiatives aimed at youth development and the appreciation of New Orleans’ unique art form.

Organizers hope that the presence of the Jazz Market in historic and vibrant Central City will enhance the cultural aspects of the community. According to Jazz Market President and CEO Ronals Marham, “New Orleans Jazz Orchestra is proud to be part of the exciting revitalization of Central City. So many great musicians are from or lived in this area, including Jelly Roll Morton, Buddy Bolden and Kid Ory, and we’re excited to continue the Jazz legacy of this important neighborhood.”
