UNFINISHED BLUES: MEMORIES OF A NEW ORLEANS MUSIC MAN

The Historic New Orleans Collection celebrates New Orleans composer, producer, arranger, educator and jazz ambassador Harold Battiste Jr. with the release of his memoir, Unfinished Blues: Memories of a New Orleans Music Man. Chasing the dream from New Orleans to Los Angeles and back, Battiste thrived in the jazz, blues and pop scenes. The creative force behind a bevy of number-one hits-Barbara George's “I Know (You Don't Love Me No More),” Joe Jones's “You Talk Too Much,” Sam Cooke's “You Send Me”-and the sage who launched the careers of Dr. John and Sonny & Cher, Battiste worked behind the scenes of the music industry for more than half a century. With Unfinished Blues, his voice is heard, unfiltered, at last. Richly illustrated and featuring excerpts from Battiste's personal letters and journals, Unfinished Blues launches The Collection's new Louisiana Musicians Biography Series, dedicated to documenting the region's rich musical heritage.
