I had written a long entry all about AYH and the show at the Maple Leaf uptown when he joined Jimbo Mathus & The Tri-State Coalition in the second set and they rocked the doors off the place 'til it sounded like a Mississippi Jukejoint, or a Country Church..but the site crashed and I lost it.
Chet Overall said they had a blast the first time they played live on my show, so we decided to do it again. The Lagniappe Brass Band, a new B.B. that does some very tight ensemble playing, will once again entertain, fun and good music this coming Friday morning, 8 o'clock CST, January the 28th, 2010. Tune in!

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.
