Fear not, you NOLA unenthusiasts . I have not abandoned you. I just need to get this out of my system. With the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival kicking off today...without me...how dare it...I had one more mix needing to escape. Consider it a small personal consolation to help quell the pangs. Unzip and enjoy the musical representation of my need for Louisiana heat, the food, the smell of magnolia, the sound of Injuns and brass, Gulf shrimp, hot sauce, cold oysters and warm people.
Happy Jazz Fest!

Self-explanatory, really. I did this years ago and played it in my shop for a week. If it was official, I would have sold enough to retire. Isn't that always the case? Nothing super-rare, just nice all in one spot.
