Ha - well now, great jazz minds think alike - I'm just playing New Orleans Wiggle, and it's certainly at the top of my top March CD's ....... plus, for gigs - Tenement Jazz Band at the Prohibition Bar in March, which was where I bought their CD, and from the Racine Bix Fest, Chicago's Fat Babies and the Shake 'em up Mamas from New Orleans. Racine is about 90 miles north of the Windy City, Chicago, and the whole area is full of jazz history.
