New Orleans Blues in the Night

Copyright Michael Cortello Photography

It is said that truly great musicians give the same inspired performance whether the audience numbers 5 or 5,000. I was reminded of that fact when we traveled down to the French Quarter last Saturday night to let my son Michael capture a few late night photos. On the “Moonwalk” that borders the Mississippi River, we came across this New Orleans Street Musician with nothing but a harmonica, a microphone, and a small amplifier. We encountered him, alternatively blowing his instrument and wailing bluesy lines for a handful of late night strollers around 11:00 p.m.

New Orleans is the One I Love Music Video

If you’ll excuse a little self-promotion today, the music video that I recorded with the talented Ms. Romy Kaye reached 11,000 hits at YouTube this week. Thanks for the support and kind remarks on the song. Complete album preview at CDBaby, iTunes, or Amazon.com
