Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Sunday Music Blogging

OK. It's a couple hours early. But give me a break, I've got a big day tomorrow. Playing at noon to kick off the Jazz Fest, then hanging around till deep in the evening to hear the BIG CATS play.

For now, here is a song that I absolutely love. And this version is special. I actually know, and have made music with Ray Heitger - though if he remembers me at all, it is probably with disdain.

Anyway, a very nice rendition of DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO MISS NEW ORLEANS?, featuring Ray's son, DUKE, with a cameo appearance by Ray on clarinet.

D-land style playing, eh. Nicely done. The link to Royal Garden Blues cool. I enjoy some old nawlins style jass--Jelly Roll Morton an amazing player (tho' not quite merican role model material). Some of Louis Armstrong's old recordings were quite cool

Yeah. I loves me some traditional jazz.
