We attended and hour long program featuring Emily Fransen(soloist and clarinetist) accompianed by a male pianoist playing jazz music. Beautiful music. They preformed in the old U.S. Mint building which now is a Jazz museum. The ground floor has artifacts from the mint.

We almost didn't want to walk back there becuz last time there were so many unsavory characters around and it smelled, but this time it was clean and very touristy. And we caught a live band at the performance stage too.

A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great

across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
