Three Years' On, The Big Easy Faces Another Storm
As the latest news concerning Hurricane Gustave continues to develop (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/7590426.stm ), I'm reminded of the concert Allen Toussaint & the Preservation Hall Jazz Band gave at Liverpool's Philharmonic Hall in June of last year. During the concert Allen remarked that it was unusual for him to play live anywhere let alone outside the US. However, "booking agent Katrina", as he dryly put it made that a necessity. Let's hope that Gustave doesn't have any music management plans for itself. Stay safe, guys.
