Met a young horn player out of Atlanta a few weeks ago in Charleston. He was not impressed when I mentioned that we had a modern-day Louis Armstrong on our hands in one Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews. Asked him if he ever got to New York. Why, he responded? Told him that I would look for him when "Trombone" played the Madison Square Garden again. Might even buy him a ticket, for education is a good thing...

DeucE, Evan and I got to see him in action playing with Anders Osborne at the NOLA Jazz & Heritage Fest last month. They kicked it hard like he does here with his own band, North Mississippi AllStars. I just love Sunday mornings back home, got to get that second cup now before I hit replay for the fifth time...

That little voice in my head convinced me to leave what was turning into an extraordinary performance by Gary Clark Jr. for the Blues Tent so that my son Evan and our friend Bobby I. could experience Breaux Bridge's own Sonny Landreth. Like this performance here, Mr. Landreth did not disappoint. He seems to find his zone right out the gate when performing at the NOLA Jazz Fest each year. He garnered standing ovation after standing ovation and rightfully so. It was a good feeling to have my son by my side and when Bobby told me that he had never seen anything like it before, well you know...

This performance alone was well worth the price of admission, hooked DeucE they did...
