Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler! – It’s Mardi Gras!

King Oliver & His Creole Jazz Band – Sugar Foot Stomp (1926)
Louis Armstrong played 2nd cornet, married the piano player Lil Hardin.

Lil Armstrong & Buck Washington – Or Leave Me Alone (1936)
That’s Mrs. Louis Armstrong to you.

Al Hirt – When The Saints Go Marching In
Not sure what year, but I’m pretty sure that’s Pete Fountain on clarinet.

Might as well throw some Cajun into the mix while we’re at it. No idea who the artist is or what year, but the song is called Toot Toot.


Joyeux Mardi Gras!
J’espère que vous en avez un gros!

I like these guys, but there’s just too damn many of them.

If I were younger and single, I’d hang out with her. She’s fun.

The Wave:  Here’s how they do it in Ovar, Portugal.

Rio de Janeiro has a large population of diminutive people, and they built a floating recliner just for Jennifer Lopez.  She’s a goddess down there.
