New Orleans (Hoagy Carmichael song)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"New Orleans" is a 1932 popular song written by Hoagy Carmichael. The song is now considered a jazz standard, along with several other Carmichael compositions such as "Stardust", "Georgia on My Mind" and "Lazy River".[1]

The song was recorded by Bennie Moten's Kansas City Orchestra and the Casa Loma Orchestra as an up-tempo number, but failed to achieve success until Carmichael released a slower version of the song with Scottish vocalist Ella Logan.[2] It was based on the chord progression from the bridge of two earlier standards: "You Took Advantage of Me" and "Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams".[2]

A classic recording is by Ella Logan and Carmichael. Another is by Dorothy Loudon in her album entitled "Saloon." Al Hirt released a version on his 1963 album, Our Man in New Orleans.[3] Canadian rock band Stampeders included a cover of the song on their 1975 album Steamin, and Teddi King also covered it on her 2008 album 'Round Midnight.

The song was re-done in the 1998 film Blues Brothers 2000 with the fictitious supergroup The Louisiana Gator Boys and The Blues Brothers (including original keyboardist Paul Shaffer, who guest-starred in the film and was the original Blues Brothers keyboardist on Saturday Night Live).
