A TASTE OF HEAVEN: The Heartbreak Life Of Raymond Myles
Anyone with a spirtual connection to New Orleans knows of Raymond Myles. Those who don't, I offer you an opportunity.
Most of the time, one visit to the Crescent City is enough to change a person. My first visit changed me. I heard music differently. I saw people differently. I learned to appreciate gospel music in ways I never thought possible. It's unfortunate that I never had a chance to see Raymond perform. His life was cut short way too soon. But the minute I step foot on the Fairgrounds at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in New Orleans, the spirit of Raymond Myles takes over.
My friend Leo Sacks had an idea and I know many New Orleans devotees would love to see this idea come to life. Please take a look at the trailer for "A TASTE OF HEAVEN: The Heartbreak Life Of Raymond Myles," and pass it on if you are so inspired.

Gospel music scares people. But, as Bob Dylan said, "You don't have to be a junkie to enjoy Heroin by The Velvet Underground.
