BEFORE THE STOMP, THERE WAS GREAT MUSIC (Part Two): DUKE HEITGER and the CRESCENT CITY JOYMAKERS at THE PALM COURT JAZZ CAFE: OTIS BAZOON, DAVID BOEDDINGHAUS, RICHARD MOTEN, JEFF HAMILTON, RAY HEITGER (October 10, 2013)

Duke Heitger’s wonderful Steamboat Stomp in New Orleans — a jazz festival on the steamboat Natchez — started unofficially the night before, Thursday, October 10, 2013, with a sweetly evocative session at The Palm Court Jazz Cafe (1204 Decatur Street).  Duke’s colleagues were clarinetist / saxophonist Otis Bazoon, pianist David Boeddinghaus, string bassist Richard Moten, and drummer Jeff Hamilton.  Later, some friends and family arrived to have fun on the bandstand, too.  Here’s a second substantial portion of heartfelt jazz — good old good ones that will never grow old.  We like it, we like it:

I COVER THE WATERFRONT:

PANAMA:

STARDUST:

MAMA INEZ (add Ray Heitger, clarinet):

ST. JAMES INFIRMARY:

May your happiness increase!

  1. Thanks for your interesting blog. However, I do have a problem: how does a viewer start the music? I’ve left-clicked on both titles and photos and never gotten any sound.

    Best wishes for the holidays.

  2. Dear Les,

    If you are getting the blog through email, then try clicking on the blue hyperlinked title at the very top. Also, sometimes people are understandably impatient with YouTube — which takes a bit of time to load properly. If all else fails, go direct to JAZZ LIVES on WordPress OR to YouTube itself. I hope these fixes work for you. The music is worth the scuffle! Cheers and happy Thanksgiving, Michael
