Here we are at the entrance to the Snug Harbor Jazz club. You will notice I have had too much good cajun and creole and French food this past week. You will also notice that the concert is sold out….. and I’m on the front row Yeah. You will also notice from the picture immediately here to the left just how tiny the venue is. If it holds even 100 people I’d be entirely surprised. Note as well the vibes and the piano supported by a fine bass player and drummer. The Marsalis family includes— a pianist (Ellis the Father), a drummer/vibes player (Jason, the youngest), a trumpeter(Wynton) a sax player (Branford), a trombonist (Delfeayo), in short an entire jazz orchestra. What an amazing family. After the hour and a half concert in the smallest venue I have ever been in. And afterwards, Jason and Ellis very kindly signed my favorite CD of theirs. But first a Mardi Gras picture—- this is one infinitely partying town.
