It's the perfect time for this Anders Osborne song.
My favorite line: "The garbage truck just passed you up and that potent smell of seafood shells ...and sweet blooming magnolia trees...that's summertime in New Orleans." Indeed.
And we promise to do our part keep playing plenty of Irma Thomas, James Andrews, Kermit Ruffins, and Satchmo.
More about about Jam in the Van: "The Jam in the Van crew is made up of true music fans based in Venice, CA. We decided to put together this project to go and find the great music that we know is hiding out across the American landscape, and we want to put it all on film." They've done some other New Orleans videos, including Khris Royal, Kermit Ruffins and Sasha Masakowski.
