It was indeed 5-5-01 (according to the date in my music trading list - not according to my memory!). It was indeed at Tip's Uptown. It was the night that I met the Soulsistah and her man (for the second time) Her man, as I recall, was having a bit of trouble speaking coherently at the time. Lots of "induced vibrations" making him a little incoherent, but friendly, very friendly! It was the night Lenny wasn't holding it together too well either. It was the night that I walked almost all the way back to our hotel with a guy named Disco Tony.
Sunday morning in New Orleans, first light, people all dressed up and on their way to church, and there we were: Two guys, one of whom was wearing a mutlicolored afro-wig, and who had obviously been out all night partying in a club, staggering down the street trying to figure out how to get back to the french quarter. That was a long walk after a long night of Festing!
"When I say JazzFest, you say ALL NIGHT!"
Wish I were going this year.
M+P, have some fun for me.... at least think of me when you hit Igor's after an all nighter!
PS: Everyone watching the Caution Recording Thread? I wonder if we'll ever hear some more music from the virgin voyage.
