New Orleans Day on the Green
Dr. Michael White is a scholar who's made it his life's mission to explain the importance of New Orleans jazz, and then to prove it with his formidable skills on the clarinet.  On Sunday the Micheal White Quartet, featuring equally dedicated Crescent City musicians/educators Gregg Stafford on trumpet and Seva Venat on banjo, is making its California debut, closing out the 18th Healdsburg Jazz Festival at the New Orleans Day on the Green Show at Dry Creek Vineyard. White, 61, was born and raised in New Orleans.

MJ's Brass Boppers Brass Band strives to let everything hang out  everything being the various musical strains that have fertilized New Orleans music through the 20th century, starting with traditional jazz polyphony then bringing in the big bands, bebop, jump, Afro-Caribbean and rhythm and blues. Led by New Orleans born and bred Michael MJ Jones on snare drum, the Brass Boppers feature Naazir Naaz Magbool on trumpet,  Greg Gomez on trombone, Harold Homeboy Wilson on bass drum and percussion, Nate Suave Cameron on vocals and percussion, Mike Slice Waters and Al Lazard on saxophones, Tom Salvatore and Malcolm Stokes on trumpets, Joshua Serotiak on sousaphone and Big Chief Ray Blazio as, well, the Big Chief Mardis Gras Indian.

The Russian River Ramblers, a septet of clarinet (Charles Moller), tuba (Carl Elze), trumpet (Steve Schaffer), guitar (Joel Hernandez), banjo (Dave Stare), trombone (John Ray) and piano (Joe Meeker), conjure the spirits of Louis Armstrong, W.C. Handy and Sidney Bechet, among other turn-of-the-century greats, on traditional jazz tunes such as Gatemouth, West End Blues, and Bogalusa Strut to polyphonic perfection.
