Habitat for Harmony

Musicians village to help nurture jazz traditions

The Times-Picayune, New Orleans LA
Wednesday, December 07, 2005
By Leslie Williams, Staff writer

"Elected officials and others often give speeches about how much they treasure New Orleans' musicians. On Tuesday they unveiled a post-
Katrina plan to match the words with deeds.
At least 100 instrument-toting folks from the hurricane-ravaged
Crescent City will be offered an opportunity to become homeowners
in a 'musicians village,' according to the plan. New Orleans Area
Habitat for Humanity will build the houses with donations placed in
a special local account.
Saxophonist Branford Marsalis, a former 'Tonight Show with Jay Leno' bandleader; his father, noted pianist Ellis Marsalis; Mayor Ray Nagin;
and Jim Pate, director of the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity,
anannounced the plan Tuesday, which comes with a price tag that
could range from $7.5 million to more than $15 million, depending
on donations.
If total contributions reach $15 million, Habitat could build about 200
homes in the village, said Pate, who has not yet picked a site for the
project.
At least $1 million for the village will be funneled from part of the
proceeds collected at the 'From the Big Apple to the Big Easy' benefit concerts at New York's Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music
Hall on Sept. 20. And more revenue is expected from those concerts,
said New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival organizer Quint Davis,
who also co-produced the New York events, which featured Elton
John, Simon and Garfunkel, the Dave Matthews Band and others.
Bob Wright, vice chairman of General Electric Co. and chief executive
officer of NBC Universal, has pledged another $80,000, a personal
donation to finance the construction of one house in the village. In a
letter Wright said he, his wife and children 'are grateful for the inspired
vision of Branford Marsalis and our good friend Harry Connick Jr.,'
both of whom have helped lead fund-raising efforts for the project.
'Through their efforts and leadership,' Wright said, 'musicians of modest means will have a place to live, raise their families and continue to cul-
tivate the musical richness that defines New Orleans.'
Aid promised by the French government for musicians also could be
linked to this effort, Nagin said.
The village will incorporate a music center named after Ellis Marsalis,
a jazz musician and educator. The center will provide rehearsal space,
a computer room and classrooms for private lessons for youths.
'The musicians who are living in the village will donate their time there
to young students who are interested in learning New Orleans music in
the New Orleans way,' Branford Marsalis said.
Habitat will stray from its typical format of only single, detached homes
and add some duplexes in the village 'that are elder friendly' Pate said.
The village's location is among many details still being worked out, Pate
said. The selection process 'will be based on need foremost,' Branford Marsalis said.
Pate agreed, adding that other factors in the selection process will include
a willingness to become a Habitat partner by providing 'sweat equity'
and the ability to pay for a home.
Habitat, Pate reminded, is not a giveaway program. Each homeowner
is responsible for paying a mortgage. Volunteer support and donations
allow the housing to be sold at an affordable price, he said.
If a location is chosen soon and other issues are resolved, the ground-
breaking for the musicians village could be in mid-January, Pate said.
Ellis Marsalis, whose sons Wynton, Delfeayo and Jason also play
music professionally, called the proposed center carrying his name 'a
great honor.' He said he hopes to help craft the vision for it and looks
forward to 'being able to interact with kids once again.'
The 'real beauty of it,' Pate said, 'is all of these components coming
together will provide the mentors and teachers for the next generation
of New Orleans jazz and blues musicians. . . . The next generation will
be living side by side by the old legends and the older masters who will
teach them at the Ellis Marsalis Performance Center.' "
