…Watchin’ people sashay
Past my steps
By my porch
In front of my door…
Church bells are ringin’
Choirs are singing
While the preachers groan
And the sisters moan
In a blessed tone…
Down in the treme
Is me and my baby
We’re all going crazy
While jamming and having fun…
Trumpet bells ringing
Bass drum is swinging
As the trombone groans
And the big horn moans
And there’s a saxophone…
Treme is a colourful location for the masterpiece post-Katrina drama series, as well as being a place of historic cultural significance…
It was thanks to a tip off from the vunderbar Sue at the Vacherie Bar on Toulouse Street that resulted in me heading on down for an experience of stunning food and cool jazz in the heat of the afternoon…
Until we speak again, keep jamming and having fun!
Full acknowledgements go to John Boutte for the lyrics of the Treme theme tune.
Couldn’t have planned it better!
Hi Alan, planning is overrated! Perhaps that’s why my Town Planning career ended before it started.
What a fab musical and culinary treat! Beautifully documented and narrated!
Beautifully captured story and pics, what a gourmet and musical paradise!
Thanks Wanda, it was great to be in the very district that a favourite drama programme was named after. But to be there while an event was happening sealed the sea.
