Long Description:
The New Orleans Jazz Museum is a music museum dedicated to preserving and celebrating the history of jazz music. Through dynamic interactive exhibits, multigenerational educational programming, research facilities, and engaging musical performances, the music New Orleans made famous is explored in all its forms.

From Wikipedia: "Earl Cyril Palmer (October 25, 1924 – September 19, 2008) was an American rock and roll and rhythm-and-blues drummer. He is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Palmer played on many recordings, including Little Richard's first few albums and many other well-known rock and roll records. According to one obituary, "his list of credits read like a Who's Who of American popular music of the last 60 years."

He remained in demand as a drummer throughout the 1970s and 1980s, playing on recordings for albums by Randy Newman, Tom Waits, Bonnie Raitt, Tim Buckley, Little Feat and Elvis Costello.

In 1982, Palmer was elected treasurer of the Local 47 of the American Federation of Musicians. He served until he was defeated in 1984. He was re-elected in 1990.

In later years, Palmer played with a jazz trio in Los Angeles." (visit link)
