Ben Schenck (leader and clarinet), Aurora Nealand (alto saxophone) and the Panorama Jazz Band riff on a Hugh Masekela tune at French Quarter Fest 2008.

The band also plays traditional, old time New Orleans jazz; klezmer; balkan; Mexican; Caribbean and who knows what else.

I love this band. They’ll be at Jazz Fest (good!)

They’ve got two albums:

* Another Hot Night In February (2003)
* Panoramaland (2005) press conference
Passing the torch in New Orleans
