Deep South

Might be a growing gap between the other chaps and me – I’m tending more and more back to New Orleans and the twenties [or revival] rather than … otherwise. I just prefer its free, raw and jaunty feel and the South is not unlike Ulysses’ sirens – it can entice and hold you within.

Beale Street is Memphis Tennessee but it’s basically southern jazz. [I like the north and west too in other genres – Langhorne Slim is New York.]

  1. I spent 3 months in Louisiana last year. Got down to New Orleans a number of times. I loved the Quarter. My favorite bar was the Bombay Club. The street tunes were top notch too. And the bookshops were outstanding.
