More photos from New Orleans

Here is the third batch of photos from my US trip.
The first three were taken at the excellent tribute to Bobby Charles by the Li'l Band of Gold in a crowded Parish Room at the House of Blues. Here is swamp pop singer and drummer Warren StormAmong a number of special guests for this show was New Orleans legend Dr John. Another guests was Elvis Costello, who is pictured duetting with Tommy McLain on Before I Grow Too Old. My sentiments exactly!
The next few pictures are from the second Friday of Jazzfest. Here is New Orleans' contribution to the girl group sound of the 60s, the Dixie Cups.
And here is another towering New Orleans musician, pianist, singer, producer, songwriter Allen Toussaint.
This is Jose Feliciano, who didn't quite light my fire.
Over in the Gospel Tent were the Selvys, an excellent all female gospel group in the traditional style.
Gospel in an altogether more modern style was offered by the energetic Kirk Franklin.
And here's a picture of me enjoying Jazzfest.
These are two of the Gypsy Kings.
Away from Jazzfest, here is a tormented looking Irma Thomas singing at an evening show at The Precinct.
This is Charmaine Neville at the launch party for her new jazz club on St Charles Avenue.

I saw Irma Thomas at the Precinct on the Thursday. Since she only did one show that night, she performed a longer set. Good performance, shame about the acoustics.
