Well, after a work trip that covered the past three major holidays, I'm back at WWOZ for another edition of "Jazz from the French Market." First of all, my sincere thanks to Jeff Greenberg who filled in for me. Jeff, you did an amazing job. There's been a lot of new music to come out that I'm itching to play.
On today’s show, we kick things off by hopping a train from Mississippi to New Orleans with Little Freddie King; making it to the city just in time to catch some bawdy throws from the Krewe du Vieux parade.
