Widely regarded as one of the leading authorities and culture-bearers of traditional New Orleans jazz music, White has performed in over two dozen countries, played on over 50 recordings, received countless awards, made multiple national television appearances, and guest directed several Lincoln Center jazz concerts and tributes.
