Moans and Blues

Blues doesn't get more New Orleans sweet-an'-sour than when it's done by Creole Songbird Lizzie Miles. Sweet she appreciates: "I ain't gonna give you none of my jelly-roll...not to save your soul." But the sour is always in balance: "Because I've been mistreated, I feel that I could die...I'm goin' away, just to get you off my mind." This legendary herald of the blues is joined by pianist Red Camp and Tony Almerico's All Stars band at the Bourbon Street Mardi Gras Lounge.
