Warehouse Stomp 1/27/2012

As I was preparing my set for last night I was thinking about how I had this big Sidney Bechet shaped hole in my music collection.  That hole has now been filled as you can see based on my set last night.

It also worked out that we did a birthday jam for Gayl last night because I happen to think that “Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho” is a fantastic birthday jam number.

I think with a bit of tweaking I could get a pretty good set together for Mardi Gras. I ended up switching the set around a bit to help keep the energy going in the room so the final set list I posted below doesn’t quite match how I had it.

Oh, and did you know that Tucson Swings is playing at Armory Park tonight?
