MUSICIAN Born:

Joe Robichaux

Joe Robichaux - piano (1900 - 1965) Joseph Robichaux was born in New Orleans in 1900, and lived there for most of his life, with spasms of jazz action in Chicago and New York, or touring in Cuba, Europe and Japan. He played piano with Oscar Celestin, in the Black Eagle Band, and also accompanied the excellent Jones/Collins Astoria Hot 8, one of the first bands (1929) to be recorded at home in New Orleans. As a pianist he was a modernizer with a full grasp of New Orleans tradition, and his band played what could be called 'New New Orleans music'. On his Document release, The Rhythm Boys supplied tight, sharp, driving ensemble work, with fierce riffs being interspersed with hard, blazing solos

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
