A Sample of what you missed at New Orleans To Go

Ok, I admit, I am still thumbs with this moody Flip video and it's ability to eat AA batteries like Tic Tacs without any notice. And since I am not the Amazing Kreskin, I have no idea when the batteries are going to croak, (but it's often mid-song--SURPRISE! !$*? ) and without a stopwatch, no clue when the 28 minutes of music is going to fill up the "30 minute" FLIP card. Nevertheless, here is a little under two minute sound bite of "When the Saints Go Marchin' in".

They have done longer versions of this FABULOUS song but tonight chose to do the short "A.M" version but I am posting it anyway. Worth it to hear a bit of Yvan's "Louis Armstrong" imitation, and John's bilateral use of arms for two instruments at the same time. Hope to get a longer rendition in the next couple of months as each musician adds a lot to this classic song.

You'se a Viper, a song about a special herb the old jazz musicians sang about in the 30's and 40's.
