5.0 out of 5 stars New Orleans now, December 31, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Year Before the Flood: A Story of New Orleans (Hardcover)
Going to New Orleans for lovers of American music is like going to Greece for lovers of antiquity. If you're serious, someday ya just gotta make the trip.

The difference is that a surprising number of the "ancient" things past legends like Louis Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton recalled from the early part of the 20th century are still alive and well in NOLA today: social and pleasure clubs, Second Line parades. Indian tribes, jazz funerals, great musicians seemingly on every block .and what for my money is the best food on the planet.

If you can't get to New Orleans right now, get this book. It's the next best thing to being shown around by a native.

If you love New Orleans, this book will fill you with pride and joy and get you even deeper into the deepest city in America.
