HostingCon Global: The Rich Musical Culture of New Orleans

Add Your Comments

When hosting and cloud decision-makers gather in New Orleans July 24 to 27 for HostingCon Global, the busy days will give way to the vibrant night life of the Big Easy.

New Orleans is generally accepted to be the birthplace of jazz. Pianist “Jelly Roll” Morton claimed to have invented jazz once he had become a star. Traditional or Dixieland jazz, however, had developed prior to then, with trumpeter Buddy Bolden or another New Orleans musician synthesizing the global musical influences of the city. Louis Armstrong brought jazz to listeners around the world, and generations of jazz virtuosos have paid their dues playing for visitors to the city. Contemporary musicians with New Orleans roots include Harry Connick Jr. and Wynton Marsalis.
