New Orleans Cotton Mouth Kings, Still Thirsty (Independent) ; The Hot Club of New Orleans, Destination: Live! At St. Louis Cathedral (Independent) two records show how vibrant the swing tradition remains in New Orleans music. The Cotton Mouth Kings play a combination of hot classics ranging from traditional New Orleans jazz to big band–era swing. Their main players are all superb soloists with a great collective sound, taking cues from the small group subdivisions of the Goodman, Shaw and Dorsey bands.
