trackback

Passed by Ashley walking into Jazz Fest this morning. The song that played when I got to the St. Leo’s Mausoleum was St. James Infirmary, one of the songs the Hot 8 played at the funeral (both in a slow, dirge version and as an up tempo number).

The first of a couple of odd bits of synchronicity today. The next was a guy standing behind me at the Acura stage this morning. Either the ghost of Everette Maddox was at Jazz Fest, or someone relishes their resemblance to the dead poet, down to the pipe. I didn’t take his picture, not wanting to spoil the odd moment.

I’m still waiting for the third odd thing to make the set complete, but the day is not ended yet.

You were right, Ray. It sounds great (but you wouldn’t know it from this crappy camera video).

That must have been a unique thing. St. James Infirmary playing, that is. I just posted something yesterday about the song.
