Mark here. Although I usually let my guitar do my talking, I wanted to tell you about a song I wrote that Delta Moon has just recorded and released. It’s called “Christmas Time in New Orleans”.
The song was inspired by a trip I took with my wife many years ago to New Orleans. It was really cold and actually snowed on Christmas Eve. We house-sat all weekend In The French Quarter for a woman who ran the Congo Square Stage at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. I remember sitting around a wood burning stove trying to stay warm, listening to WWOZ on the radio and looking up at all these photos of famous musicians on the walls. We went to parties and shows with friends all weekend wearing Mardi Gras masks. It was snowing and all the oaks in City Park twinkled with thousands of Christmas lights. Christmas time in New Orleans.
It’s our first recording with Adam Goodhue on drums, a man who knows a thang or two about New Orleans drumming!
An early holiday gift. I hope you like it.
