A Beautiful World celebrates the spirit of Basin Street Records, while commemorating the 20th year anniversary of the record label. A Beautiful World is a collaboration of over 50 artists and musicians arranged in four configurations centered around jazz structure: a big band, traditional jazz marching band, chamber orchestra and an amended funk ensemble. Ruffins says, “Collaborating with Irvin Mayfield gives me a chance to work with one of my best friends. If this record was food, it would be the best meal you will ever have in your life.”
Mayfield envisioned the album redefining New Orleans music with a mixture of genres from the original roots of city. Mayfield says, “Producing Kermit Ruffins has been one of the great joys of my life. He’s like a big brother to me and can cook his butt off.”
The debut listening premier is open to the public. The event begins at 7:30pm at the Mother-N- Law Lounge located at 1500 N. Claiborne Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70116. Guests are encouraged to arrive early. There will be live performances from various artists featured on the album and free food.
