Cosimo Matassa, 1926-2014

Those who know me and those who know me through these pages know how I feel about New Orleans.

The city.

The people.

The warmth.

The food.

The music.

The music.

Just got word that Cosimo Matassa has passed.

Go HERE and see what I'm talking about.

The music.

Two comments in one day....but as a proud South Louisianian who mostly just misses the music and food, this is a loss, but what a run/life...

sad news. He gave us all a lot of good music.

I'm reading "Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!" this new pop history (by a Brit) which asserts with a straight face that Bill Haley "invented rock 'n roll." Honky, please! (Cosimo would have eaten him for breakfast and recorded another dozen sessions before it was time for his 3-hour lunch... - bill buckner
