I am grateful for: traditional jazz

Our jazz fest krewe at Preservation Hall this spring

Preservation Hall Jazz Band plays New York tonight and I’m such a geeky fan girl that I’m going even though I think I’ve seen them five times already this year.

Traditional jazz is my soul music. It never fails to make me happy. Whether I am covered in mud on a rainy day at New Orleans Jazz Fest or packed into a hot, sweaty little club, I am compelled to tap my foot, bob my head and smile.

Special bonus: John and I met our friend Ittai at Arthur's on Monday for traditional jazz with the Grove Street Stompers. Two great shows in one week! Click here to learn more about the Stompers.

I’m grateful to live in a city where I get the opportunity to be a repeat customer seeing a band that makes my heart sing, and grateful to have discovered traditional jazz, New Orleans and Preservation Hall.

If you can’t make it to City Winery tonight, here are some videos to help get your foot tapping.
