A couple of people I know are off to New Orleans for a week of r and r tomorrow.  They're hoping to hear some good music, maybe something like this.

Laissez les bon temps rouler

(Let the good times roll)


  1. I was fortunate enough to hear Eric Clapton many years ago. Quite an experience.

  2. What a surprise! If you had asked; 'what is the most unlikely song Capton would do in this style?' I could have answered 'St James Infirmary'. As a young trad band guitarist in the 50's, we played it as a dirge with the usual trumpet, clarinet and trombone front line. I like this better.

  3. SH - Lucky you!

    SR - I'd love to hear your version.

  4. I don't know which New Orleans experience is better....the music or the food? Talk about a win-win! :)


  5. I once lived for a couple of years in Austin, Texas, and was delighted with the access to Louisiana. But for some reason, we never got there . . for the music or the food. But we will!

  6. Oh my, mon frère ! The Catalyst in New Orleans?
    A dangerous, dangerous combination.

  7. Super Video. The Frau and I spent a week ther many years ago.

  8. TC - No, not me. But someday.

    Steve - A great place to go. I think a week is about all my tummy could handle, though!
