Basin Street Revisited
Mardi Gras is almost upon us, eh? I got my red beans soakin’, so I can do some cookin’ tomorrow! I’d really hoped to record either “I Thought I Heard Buddy Bolden Say” or “Winin’ Boy Blues” for the occasion but, long story short, that isn’t happening. So with apologies to those who caught it first time around, here’s yours truly with my ’58 Harmony Master archtop doing “Basin Street Blues.” I know it’s a bit mellow for serious partying, but I’m pretty laid back from a musical standpoint!
Also in keeping with the season: If you want to read something just beautiful about New Orleans, please check out today's post at the always entertaining & informative New Orleans Ladder.
Otherwise: Laissez les bons temps rouler!
