Petaluma Records has released a brand new version of the Aaron Neville R&B/soul classic “Hercules.” This collaboration between Aaron Neville and Dirty Dozen Brass Band was recorded during the making of Take Me To the River: New Orleans, a documentary film and soundtrack celebrating the rich musical history, the heritage, legacy, and influence of New Orleans and Louisiana music through live sessions with local artists. “Hercules” features the same personnel as the Take Me To the River: New Orleans recording of “Stompin’ Ground,” which won the GRAMMY for Best American Roots Performance earlier this year. Written by legendary New Orleans songwriter Allen Toussaint and originally released in 1973, “Hercules” celebrates the 50th anniversary of its release this year.

The film is now available digitally on iTunes, GooglePlay, Amazon, watch a trailer HERE.

The deluxe soundtrack release is a true collaboration that celebrates the melting pot that is the musical DNA of NOLA. From traditional jazz to Second line, From Rhythm and Blues to Hip Hop and Rap, from Funk/Soul to Rock and Roll, the producers of this wholly unique and unprecedented project have paired legendary legacy musicians with the rising stars of the 21st Century to create a historic musical collaboration unlike any that has come before. The album features brand new recordings of the final performances from the Neville Brothers and one of the last studio sessions with Dr. John as well as all new collaborative performances from a range of great New Orleans artists. The music of New Orleans is a wholly unique worldwide collaboration, and Take Me To The River: New Orleans gives the viewer an insightful historical perspective of how global influences shaped, and continue to shape, a musical quilt that formed the music of this extraordinary city.
