TBC Brass band Live at Canal and Bourbon, New Orleans, September 2011

When I checked into my room at the Holiday Inn on Royal at Canal in New Orleans, I could hear a brass band playing in the distance, so before driving out to the Hi-Ho Lounge, I walked up to Bourbon Street at Canal, where the music was coming from. The band proved to be the To Be Continued Brass Band, a famous young band that I had first encountered last year when they challenged the Stooges at the latter band’s regular weekly gig at the Hi-Ho Lounge. The resulting battle in the street corner was one of those serendipities that make me love New Orleans. On this particular night I met Edward Jackson, a trombonist who also handles the business affairs for TBC, and we arranged to have a business meeting about music distribution before I left the city.
