About The FoodMusicJustice Project
In the dark years after the failure of the US Army Corps of Engineers levees (don’t call it Katrina), Jazz on the Tube produced a few hundred short articles in support of New Orleans. We also shot a lot of original video.

We’re in the process of trying to reconstruct it, a laborious and expensive process.
What we have been able to salvage so far were notes about our “Manchester Loves New Orleans” Project. The goal was to stimulate musical and artistic exchanges between the UK’s hippest music city and New Orleans.
The two cities have strong historical connections. If you throw Liverpool into the mix, the case can be made that modern pop music was invented by a collaboration between these two places.
