Monthly Playlist – August

Monthly Playlist – August

August 1, 2017

In honor of my recent trip to New Orleans, I’m dedicating this monthly playlist to some of my favourite New Orleans style jazz songs.

New Orleans, the originator of jazz music, is bouncing with the most incredible sounds of jazz all throughout the city – especially in the French Quarter. I love roaming the streets listening to the most talented musicians entertaining the passersby. I’ve even been lucky enough to attend JazzFest (New Orleans-based music festival). What an experience!

There is a jazz club called Irving Mayfield’s that I try to go into when I’m in New Orleans. It’s a relaxed atmosphere where you can grab a cocktail, comfy up on a couch or at a table and be highly entertained by the talented musicians that grace the stage. My favourite is their regular drummer (who is also the lead vocalist). He entertains the crowds like no other! You can read more about my recent visit to Irvin Mayfield’s here.

I hope you enjoy this invigorating monthly playlist as much as I do!
