Lonely Planet review

Jazz heads, and really anyone interested in New Orleans music, should pop into the Hogan Jazz Archive ; most of its great wealth of material is not on exhibit; the librarian will retrieve items from the stacks for you. That collection includes stacks of 78rpm recordings like early sides by the Original Dixieland Jazz Band in 1917. More casual visitors may enjoy the Storyville Room, with its emphasis on Jelly Roll Morton (who played piano in the district’s bordellos during the early 20th century).
