. Wise came to Philadelphia in the wake of hurricane Katrina, after spending a dozen years in New Orleans, and formed his New Orleans Jazz Band, which has become one of the most popular attractions on the East Coast traditional jazz circuit. And his Jazz Bridge appearances have often been near sell-outs. Members of the NOJB are trumpeter Stan Slotter, clarinetist Charley Salinger, trombonist Frederick E Scott
