Nine Lives Musical Adaptation Listening Party
The Nine Lives CD is a musical adaptation of the New York Times bestselling book "Nine Lives" by Dan Baum (New York: Spiegel & Grau, 2009). Nine Lives, is a remarkable oral history of New Orleans in the forty years (1965‐2005) between the twin catastrophes known as Betsy and Katrina, as seen through the eyes of nine of its citizens. The CD includes the first 24 songs imagined for a theatrical production and anticipated to become a Broadway musical.
"The Nine Lives album captures the uniqueness, diversity and rich storylines that everybody can share and enjoy. The music we wrote and produced encompasses traditional New Orleans jazz, rock, funk, chamber music, Mardi Gras Indian chants, 70's soul, hip‐hop, brass band music, rap and blues that comes together beautifully and rises off the pages of the book, and will be unprecedented to the Broadway stage," said Paul Sanchez, singer, songwriter and producer of the album.
