As an award-winning photojournalist, author and jazz historian, John delves deep into his New Orleans Spanish Colonial roots and city connections to ensure guests are presented both facts and anecdotes based on his authentic lens. He’s able to refine his pioneering perspectives on oft-overlooked jazz-greats, Hurricane Katrina coverage and his collection of rare Victrola phonographs from the gallery of his newly restored shotgun-double on Algier’s Point while photographing the sun setting on the French Quarter across the Mississippi.
