Hackberry Ramblers (Fais Do-Do stage)
... their 70th anniversary, fresh back from Europe and the Today Show, their 16th straight year at Fest... some technical difficulties, gremlins, intros, 3rd song, Jolie Blonde (Hackberries were the first to record it):


Los Sagitarios (Congo Square stage)
heard en route to:

soft-shell crab po'boy
large unsweetened rosemint tea

...did, among others, "People Say" by the Meters, an original called "Life's Been Good," "Just Kissed My Baby" ...

the fonk gets b up and dancing:


look at me, I'm so candid:


b takes my picture, I say "howdy":


La Volée d'Castors of Canada (Fais Do-Do)

large crawfish bread... too big! too cheesy! very spicy

b gets new straw hat, collapsible, extended brim

Lizz Wright (Jazz tent)


up-and-coming chanteuse, her album comes out in a few weeks, very young (23), rich, mellifluous voice... two originals, an a capella song, a unique arrangement of Mongo Santamaria's "Afro Blue" with lyrics by (check this), for her encore she does "Amazing Grace," definitely Gospel-influenced, keep an eye out for her...

Dean Allen to offer TextPattern hosting
In my aggregator today (must be a trend), as I'm downloading digiphotos from the first day of Jazz Fest:

So this is what’s been chewing up the time.

There are a number of options in the works for making available paid website hosting integrated with Textpattern (this site’s inchoate but durn near ready content management system), but TextBox is the hosting service that’s basically ready to go, is free, and is run by, er, me.

No domain registration is required: sites are reached at

Writers interested in publishing a site with Textpattern pre-installed, in a tailor-made hosting environment, with design assistance (within reason) from the putz who wrote it, might find this of interest.

For now, twenty are available.
