Music Monday - Shorty & Orleans

This is an extremely talented group. Every time I hear them it's a completely different style. From jazz classics like St. Jame's Infirmary and When the Saints Go Marching In to downright funnkadelic to fusion jazz to smooth avant garde riffs of creativity. Each and every one of them has talent down to their toes. It's obvious that David Letterman likes them and so does the audience. If you like this first video, scroll down and listen to all 27:20 minutes of the 2010 ACL live performance featuring Ivan Neville on keyboards. Awesome!

Gettin' down to funky town.

"If New Orleans is allowed to die, a crucial part of the world's music heritage will disappear."
