Lunch yesterday in Commander’s Palace in Las Vegas. CP is a reproduction of a famous New Orlean’s eatery (which is currently shut down thanks to recent weather.) This is a lovely restaurant, posh and delicious. A jazz trio wanders about, great clarinetist who doubled as their vocalist. They played Do You Know What it Means to Miss New Orleans at one point.
Remember hearing a classic recording of Louis Armstrong singing this, classic jazz – always enjoyable, but terribly ironic these days was never more poignant.
