At a time when many New Orleans people are wondering whether the nation has  
enough collective generosity (and donor stamina) to complete the restoration 
and  repairs, another element of the Internet community has rallied to the 
cause of  musicians.
The live download outfit Nugs.net has assembled an all-star compilation of  
live tracks to raise money for several New Orleans charities benefiting local  
musicians. As you'll conclude from the artists named below, few of them  would 
be played on most Jazz shows; but there is a warm spot for New Orleans  music 
in the heart of many Jazz fans. So, if there are others at your station  who 
play this genre, please pass this note along.
Nugs.net’s artist partners donated the recordings for this compilation,  
including an exclusive release from Widespread Panic’s archives, and an  
exclusive, never-before-released song, “Low,” from former Phish guitarist Trey  
Anastasio and his new band 70 Volt Parade.  

Nugs.net and the 17 artists featured on the benefit  release organized this 
compilation out of their dedication to providing  continued support for this 
vital American music community. Other artists  contributing to the benefit 
compilation include Dave Matthews Band, Phish, Jerry  Garcia Band, David Grisman 
Quintet, The String Cheese Incident, Gov’t Mule,  Yonder Mountain String Band, 
Mike Gordon and the Benevento/Russo Duo, Umphrey’s  McGee, Tea Leaf Green, 
Particle, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Outformation,  and local New Orleans 
legends The  Radiators and Galactic.
