Thanks Steve Barbone for the recommendation to go and listen to some great trad jazz at The Palm Court Cafe on Decatur Street.


I have just returned from a week in New Orleans (first time for this Canadian) and had an amazing time! I had a nice chat with Nina. She was thoroughly enjoying herself.


I went to Nina's place on 2 different nights and sang 2 songs with the Palm Court Cafe Jazz Band - After You've Gone and Basin Street Blues - a dream!


We also went to Fritzell's and heard a terrific piano player - Richard Scott - who played "A Handful of Keys" faster than Fats Waller.


Just a great time - beignets and all!



Another little tip:  Drago's at the downtown Hilton Hotel serves the most delectable char-broiled oysters and stuffed crab!!!!


Mulatte's is another great place for food and Zydeco music.
