New Orleans Sights



J&M Music Shop Review

A plaque on this 1835 building marks it as the former site of the recording studio that launched the rock-and-roll careers of such greats as Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, and Ray Charles. Although the patrons of the laundromat that now resides in this space probably don't pay it much heed, this is one of the most significant musical landmarks in New Orleans. Owned by Cosimo Matassa, the studio operated from 1945 to 1955.
