Jazzin' in New Orleans
A short clip of the Jazz Vipers, a group we heard in New Orleans at the "Spotted Cat" on Frenchman Street. It's everything you've ever envisioned of an old time jazz club -- located in a ramshackle wooden house, musicians playing old jazz standards while clutching a cigarette, beer bottle on the side. Later in the evening, a young couple walked in the door, cast off their jackets, and immediately moved to the postage-stamp size dance floor, where they provided even more wonderful entertainment for the crowd as they glided to the music with their well-coordinated dance moves.
