Harold
Battiste

Anyone who’ s ever nodded along to the beat and sweetly sang the lyrics to “ I’ve Got You Babe” by Sonny and Cher can thank Harold Battiste, New Orleans native and producer of the classic hit song. After spending 30 years in Los Angeles producing, arranging, and composing music for film, television, studio and stage, Harold Battiste returned to New Orleans to devote his talents and knowledge to the preservation of Jazz. His memoir, Unfinished Blues: Memories of a New Orleans Music Man, debuted in June 2010.
