Paul - if you see he is playing in the area again, give me a holler.  Great write up as usual.

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your ongoing reviews of cultural events, as always.

On the subject of New Orleans, a few nights ago I saw Spike Lee's series on the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina:

If you haven't seen it (and forgive me if you've already written about it) you might find it worthwhile. Mr. Lee delves deeply into the culture of New Orleans, and though the story he tells is tragic, it is also full of hope and humanity.


Great article Paul. You really captured the spirit of the night. Thanks!


The Toussaint review is wonderful,the best I've read by Paul.Wish I'd been there

Paul, you were fortunate to have the privilege of being present for a moment in history, hearing Mr. Toussaint perform. What an amazing talent you described with perfect clarity and making YOUR audience feel the emotion and appreciation of experiencing Toussaint as if we were there in person sitting along side you! Thank you :-)

Toussaint told the story with such measured cadence that I was able to keep up with most of it and transcribe it as soon as I got home. Judging by the audience's appreciative, even grateful, applause, I knew that he touched a universal sentiment for the desire to belong, to connect, and to feel safe.
