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: "James Norbert Black (February 1, 1940, New Orleans - August 30, 1988) was an American jazz drummer associated with the New Orleans jazz scene. Black played piano and trumpet during his youth, and studied music at Southern University in Baton Rouge.

Black also composed; among his works are the tunes "Monkey Puzzle" and "Dee Wee", both of which were recorded by Ellis Marsalis's ensemble in the early 1960s. As a composer, Black received two grants from the National Endowment for the Arts. Recordings under his name were compiled by Night Train Records and released on CD as "I Need Altitude": Rare and Unreleased New Orleans Jazz and Funk, 1968-1978." (visit link)
