I heard this the other night on the radio and reached immediately for a pencil and a scrap of paper so I could scribble down the title. It’s just so damn … New Orleans. Of course, with the great Allen Toussaint at the helm, you’d expect that, but still. The tempo, the horns, the clarinet … It’s a perfect distillation of a distinctive sound, bright and happy with an melancholy undertone (I sound like a damn oenephile).
Anyway, take a moment to just listen. It’ll get you in a good mood for the weekend.
