Tom Jacobsen is no longer serving in an official capacity with the Onward Brass Band, but we remain close friends and supporters of New Orleans Traditional Jazz. He is devoting much of his time to promoting his new book, which has now been published. He has been of invaluable assistance in the continuing task of reestablishing Onward in New Orleans and the brass band community in New Orleans.I cannot thank him enough for the work he has done for us.
Check out his website, http://www.neworleansnotes.com/ for a growing wealth of New Orleans music information. I feel his site will continue to grow in popularity among the traditional jazz fans around the U.S. and internationally.At this writing, Tom is soon going to publish a new book soon,title "New Orleans Jazz scene 1970-2000"
