From sweet and smooth classics, to new names, to old names with new music...the focus here, is to shine a little light on some damn fine music.

I'll find it. You can listen, review, or tell me I wouldn't know good music if it kicked me in the ass. I personally don't give a shit.

Mardi Gras. Letting the Good Times Roll on Fat Tuesday

Fat Tuesday. Yep, the last day of fun before forty of not so much. At least for those observing Lent. So if you are observing Lent and if you will be abstaining and repenting and all some shit like that, today and tonight until midnight marks the last taste you will have to "laissez les bons temps rouler" for quite a while.

While I have no say in just what types of gluttony, lasciviousness, or general debauchery you may engage in over the next 16+ hours, I do have a say in how best to get your feet moving.

Sugar Boy Crawford - "Jock-A-Mo"

Queen Ida - "Jambalya"

Neville Brothers - "Fire On The Bayou"

Buckwheat Zydeco - "Throw Me Something Mister"

Professor Longhair - "Go To The Mardi Gras"

And how could you not finish it off without Satchmo...
Louis Armstrong - "When The Saints Come Marching In"

Grab some beignets, a plate of crawfish and experience a little 'joie de vivre' for the last time, for a long time.


  1. good eats and tasty sounds

  2. Yummy! Both the food and the music! Jambalaya is one of our family favorite songs, all versions! This is a really fun list!
