Kermit Ruffins

Check back for upcoming shows.

Genre: Jazz

Band Bio: A favorite on the New Orleans music scene, trumpeter Ruffins combines the spirit of classic New Orleans music with the energy and creativity of the modern Crescent City sound. On his Putumayo retrospective, featuring selections from Ruffins' seven solo albums on Basin Street and Justice Records, Putumayo hopes to bring the music of this remarkable musician to a wider audience. "Ruffins always comes off as the real thing, with a spirit as big as his sound, a capacity for mixing entertainment with art, and an ability to leaven his traditional approach with modern elements."
