Join us this week as we listen to the excellent music of Ellis Marsalis, Dr. John, Joe Krown, and Bob Andrews. We also stop by Sylvain restaurant for a cocktail and visit Henry Griffin for a preview of this year’s New Orleans Film Festival.
Whether you’re doing the Mississippi Slow Drag or the New Orleans Shuffle, you’re in the right place! During this week's program, we will explore music from the 1920s when Blues and Jazz were musically closer to one another, and then we'll continue on into the 30s and 40s when Blues and Jazz grew apart into more distinctive forms.
