Adolphe Paul Barbarin (May 5, 1899 Feb 17, 1969) was a New Orleans jazz drummer, usually regarded (along with Baby Dodds) as one of the very best of the pre-Big Band era jazz drummers.
Paul Barbarin’s year of birth is often given as 1901, but his brother Louis Barbarin (born 1902) said he was quite sure that Paul was several years older than him, and Paul Barbarin simply refused to answer the year of his birth in an interview at Tulane’s Jazz Archives.
From the late 1910s on, Barbarin divided his time between Chicago, New York City and New Orleans, and touring with such bands as those of Joe “King” Oliver, Luis Russell, Louis Armstrong, and Henry Red Allen. From the 1950s on he usually led his own band. He, along with Louis Cottrell, Jr. founded and led the second incarnation of the Onward Brass Band from 1960 to 1969.
Barbarin was an accomplished and knowledgeable musician, a member of ASCAP, and the composer of a number of pop tunes and Dixieland standards, including Come Back Sweet Papa, Don’t Forget To Mess Around (When You’re Doing The Charleston), Bourbon Street Parade, and (Paul Barbarin’s) Second Line.
Paul Barbarin died on February 17, 1969 while playing a New Orleans Mardi Gras parade.

Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans – Trailer

“float: left; margin: 5px”>

In the new film Werner Herzog’s Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans, Nicolas Cage plays a rogue detective who is also devoted to his work as he is to score drugs – while playing fast and loose with the law. He carries his badge as he often wields his weapon to achieve his ends. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, he becomes a fanatical level of functioning that is a very intuitive, fearless detective who reigns over the magnificent ruins of New Orleans with authority and abandon. To complicate his tumultuous life is the prostitute he loves (played by Eva Mendes). Together, they descend into their own world with desire, constraint, and consciousness. The result is a singular masterpiece of cinema: as sad and humorous maniac.

CFI Releases Provocative new documentary on Hurricane Katrina, “Unmasking New Orleans”

CFI Releases Provocative new documentary on Hurricane Katrina, “Unmasking New Orleans”

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 22, 2006

On the eve of the anniversary of a year what is the worst natural disaster in U.S. history, the provocative documentary The Unmasking the new New Orleans, produced by Final Call Incorporated (CFI) was issued on broadcasting.

The struggle continues for survivors of Hurricane Katrina swept away in the public mind as soon as flood waters swept away lives and properties when the levees breached. Is there any truth to the many reports of rapes and murders? Who will tell the story of the heroic deeds of young men and women portrayed as senseless looters by the mainstream media? It is important to get the truth.

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has commissioned a team from The Final Call newspaper travel to New Orleans and the film documentary about the conditions and concerns that face our people since Hurricane Katrina, which the world must not be allowed to ignore, as we near the one-year anniversary of what is the worst natural disaster in U.S. history.

included in the documentary are insightful perspectives from New Orleans city councilor Oliver Thomas, author Michael Eric Dyson, community activist “Mama D ‘and residents nameless and faceless whose stories were not told in this way before.


images includes a visual tour of the Lower Ninth Ward with a conversation between Minister Farrakhan and the residents of New Orleans.

What was the original way New Orleans was pronounced?

I understand the locals normally say N’orlins – Stress on the Nor.
I was just curious if there was an original French way in which Orleans may have been pronounced. Currently I say New Orlins – stress on the Or, but when I was young I would say New Orleens – stress on the leens.

Only Hollywood and tourists call the city N”Awlins.

The original name of the city was in French: Nouvelle Orleans. It is pronounced new vell ore lay on.

There are two "normal” pronunciations today:

New Or le ans (Orleans is 3 syllables)
New Or leans (Orleans is 2 syllables)

The issue is somewhat confused by the fact the City of New Orleans is also (same boundaries) Orleans Parish (parish = county). Everyone says Or leans Parish (Orleans with 2 syllables).

Gutterpunks: New Orleans Homeless Street Youth – PRE Katrina

Reporter Tim Estiloz visited New Orleans in this 1997 story about a group of homeless youth – dubbed by some in the city as “Gutterpunks”. Estiloz spent several days with this group of disaffected and indigent young people – many of whom willingly chose to live on the hard – sometimes dangerous, streets of “Pre-Katrina” New Orleans.

Most of these kids lived “day to day” begging for food and money. Some lived in deplorable conditions near the popular French Quarter… unimaginable in the years before Katrina. Estiloz gained the trust of many of these kids… who allowed Estiloz to follow them, interview them and show their difficult life on the streets – an existence that some city administrators and business people in New Orleans frown upon. This is a uniquely candid and sad window into a homeless youth underclass in New Orleans that existed well before Katrina… and also still exists today.

This story was written and produced by Tim Estiloz – who now reports on entertainment for CN8 – The Comcast Network.
