oh when the saints

as a group of what looked like high school kids unloaded (from their bikes) instruments
that have definitely seen better days, i thought, how good can this be?
from the moment they lined up in position you could feel that some cool was about to
happen. i have lived in new orleans as a child and been there several times as an adult,
seen and heard countless "brass bands" play on the streets of the french quarter, but, for some
reason these kids made an impression on me. i dont know if it was my state of mind or
their thrown together assemble created a beautiful combination of soulful funk and tradition new orleans jazz but i dont know that i will ever enjoy eating roasted corn and listening to a jazz band
as much as i did that day.
