the jayhawks  

a variety of caring artists have contributed songs to for new orleans: a benefit
for the musicians' village habitat for humanity, a 31-track compilation due out
on dec. 7.

natalie merchant, indigo girls, the late jeff buckley, paul westerberg, marshall
crenshaw, gary louris and the jayhawks are some of the artists included on the
disc, along with acts from minneapolis, minnesota-based sugarfoot music, which
is releasing the album of previously unreleased material and older favourites.

the two-cd set will benefit musicians from new orleans who were victims of
hurricane katrina and the resulting floods. all proceeds will go towards habitat
for humanity's new orleans musicians village project, an idea conceived by harry
connick, jr. and branford marsalis. the eventual goal is to build 81 homes for
musicians and their families who were displaced by the hurricane.

westerberg appears on the album under the alias pw & the honky heartattax, while
buckley contributes a cover of bob dylan's "i shall be released" that was
recorded over the telephone. a 36-page colour booklet, featuring the performers'
thoughts about new orleans, is included.
