This afternoon's concert was at the New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park -- yes, it's part of the national park service.  Photos, from the top: Turning the corner as we start the walk to work; .the view from the piano bench, just before we hit; the view from the seats (from left: me, Tommy Sancton, Tom Saunders, Clive Wilson, Freddie John, Herman Lebeaux.

Love the views from the piano bench.
Nice to see Butch playing with Tommy Sancton. I would like to recommend Sancton's book, SONGS FOR MY FATHERS.
A New Orleans Story in Black and White.
Other Press. LLC, 2006. Sancton's story of the musicians who influenced him as he played the clarinet as a teenager. Scenes of early Preservation Hall. Great reading!
