Considered an integral part of the second New Orleans revival, Louis is a second-generation musician. His father, Clarence Ford was a phenomenal musician whose career spanned three decades and performed with many great entertainers such as Fats Domino. Louis yields from an impressive legacy of musicians which can be traced back to the Storyville days. Like his father, Louis is an accomplished clarinetist and saxophonist and truly dedicated to the preservation of jazz. Born and raised in New Orleans, Louis studied under professor Kidd Jordan at Southern University in Music Performance. Louis graduated from Loyola University with a degree in music education which he has built on to create a unique sound all his own.
