A Love Letter To New Orleans

A stand alone CD with fourteen handpicked tracks from Irvin Mayfield's Basin Street Records catalog. This music is also available as a CD/book combination. In the richly illustrated book, A Love Letter to New Orleans, Grammy Award-winning trumpeter Irvin Mayfield reflects and reports on the people and places his music has brought into his life thus far. From rowdy New Orleans recording sessions to late night introspection with mentors like Wynton Marsalis and the late Herman Leonard, A Love Letter to New Orleans is a poignant chronicling of Mayfield's resilient love affair with his city's legacy - Jazz.
