Our family history ensured we had a certain level of immersion in music – and this did include formal training. The answer to the age old question of “natural” talent is nebulous. I don’t think it can be accurately resolved. Other than to say, in essence I am seduced, infatuated and captivated by music. 

I know that much exists naturally within me – whatever else is the eventuality of application and experience.

"Play something sweet...play something mellow..." 

Son: "Dad - who was Allen Toussaint?" 

Me: "I guess you could think of him as a bit like Santa Claus for musicians...just send him a list of hit songs you would like...and then wait for them to arrive"

Son: "Did you see him perform?"

Me: "Sure!"

Son: "Did you have a favourite song of Allen's?"

Me: "Hmmm...I guess so...probably this one..."

"I want to lay down...my bourbon..."

Update...

Hi Folks - I am delighted to disclose that we shall be joyriding "Highway 61" from New Orleans to the Mississippi Delta...and beyond again in 2016! Our trajectory shall be strewn with juke-joints, hony-tonks and celebrated destinations. Our days and nights marinated in the distilled essence of the blues and tinged with the songful narrative of regional musicians. I am all anticipation!
