I was in awe of the musicians and also wondered if the saxophone player would even make it through the set. They were all very old. Sweet Emma Barrett was on piano and she was born in 1897! And there was only one white guy. I couldn't help but wonder who would replace them when they passed away?
But sho' nuff, they have been replaced. There's a whole new batch of musicians of every race and age and even new female vocalists, warbling those great old songs with new vigor. You can hear them at various clubs along Frenchmen Street, most any night of the week.

I heard a band Sunday night at BMC and the lead singer sounded just like Dr. John, but less gravely.
I've always loved the old music. My childhood friend Nancy used to call me Arthur Godfrey because I knew the old tunes when I was just a kid. But, see? I was just ahead of the trend.
