… gotta love Frenchmen Street on a Friday night. The “only-in-New-Orleans” experience for our tour this past Friday night was at Yuki Izakaya. The band performing there was the James Partridge Trio — good, swinging modern jazz — which, of course, consisted of 4 pieces.
The band was set up at the front of the bar area spanning the entrance – rhythm section to the right as you come through the door, horns to the left. So, essentially, when you entered the venue through the front door you came in right through the middle of the bandstand.
… nothing like making a grand entrance.
