"Voodoo Love" is a music video for jazz saxophonist, Lance Ellis. Set at The Turning Point Lounge in New Orleans, as well as the countrysides of Madisonville and Bush, Louisiana, the video takes us into a world where classic Motown style meets the world of campy horror films. Voodoo Love is also the first local jazz video to be produced in high-definition video. It includes appearances by Lischelle Brown, Mardi Gras Indian Big Chief Alfred Doucette, blues player Big Al Carson and the singing trio Mahogany Blue. The video was authored to DVD and includes extras features on the making of the video, including an extended behind the scenes documentary.
