The Palm Court Jazz Cafe in the French Quarter is known for hosting some of the legends of New Orleans traditional Jazz.  The Palm Court All Stars is led by veteran jazz pianist Lars Edegran who has become a fixture on the classic jazz scene since he moved to New Orleans in 1966. He has played with Doc Cheatham, Bob Wilber, John Robichaux and co-founded the New Orleans Ragtime Orchestra 30 years ago.

Topsy Chapman is one of New Orleans’ finest singers, adept at gospel, blues, and rhythm and blues and jazz. Topsy was chosen as the original cast member and vocal arranger of the off Broadway hit One Mo Time. The show gained critical acclaim from New York to Europe.  Most recently, Topsy appeared in the award- winning Steve McQueen film, Twelve Years a Slave. She is a musical treasure who dedicates itself to gorgeous harmonies and unique signature arrangements of jazz, blues, gospel and soul classics.
