Music




Music is to me the perfect expression of the soul.
- Robert Schumann



Music expresses that which cannot be put into words
and that which cannot remain silent.
- Victor Hugo



Music is well said to be the speech of angels; in fact nothing
among the utterances allowed to man is felt to be so divine.
It brings us near to the infinite.
- Thomas Carlyle



Music is the universal language of mankind.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow



Music acts like a magic key, to which the most tightly
closed heart opens.
- Maria Von Trapp

New Orleans' own Aaron Neville sings "Louisiana 1927" on his
"Warm Your Heart" album. No one can sing this song quite like
Aaron Neville. This deeply heartfelt song is about the Great
Mississippi River Flood of 1927
that epitomizes the history of the
struggle South Louisiana has had with flooding devastation.

WOW!
IRMA THOMAS is featured on the 2008
Jazz Fest poster, and it's the most beautiful one
I've seen to date. I cannot tell you how
thrilled I am to have what I consider the
BEST one ever. Since the early 60's, I've been
a real fan of New Orleans' "Queen of Soul."
The title of her song on the old record player
is "Ruler of My Heart."
