Kid Merv

Kid Merv is New Orleans music to the bone: as a youngster he played trumpet in the vaunted St. Augustine Marching 100 and the venerable Olympia Brass Band, moved on to form his own Young Olympians, which morphed into the funky Soul Rebels Brass Band. Born Mervin Campbell, Kid Merv now is a sought-after trumpeter and leader of his own combo, Kid Merv & All That Jazz. His cool trumpet speaks to the depths of New Orleans musical history as well as to the strengths of its future.
