Excellent Dixieland tune, Nigel. Lyrics hit all the bases and singing and playing is top notch. Man, Susan sure has some sturdy vocal chords!

Fun song - nice write, good backing, excellent vocalist.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hey Nigel.
Every part of this tune is fantastic and hits the mark on all points.
Perfectly mixed and very catchy lyrics.

Hi Nigel,

that's a treat - ace vocal by Susan, wow. Great sax playing by Carmel. Top-notch arrangement.

You don't have to be a dedicated Dixie fan-boy to love this.

Thanks for sharing, take care,

Stefan

Hi Nigel.
The song transports the Dixieland sound in my ears excellently
Exceptionally good vocals by Susan and really well played saxophone by Carmel in combination with perfectly used BiaB really leave nothing to be desired.
Both thumbs up
Many greetings
Andi ;-)

Wow very cool tune. Boy I can understand why they have the best parties in New Orleans. Vocal, Sax and trumpet were very cool. The song makes you want to get up and dance. Such a cool groove. Well done

Nigel, you, Susan, and Carmel nailed the New Orleans vibe on this one.

Excellent mix.

Loved it.

Nigel ...

What a great surprise! This is a real Gem! Susan and Carmel simply shine. And the lyric is perfect for the genre.

I could listen to this the rest of the night. Unfortunately, I have things to do that will prevent that.

Susan really did a great female impersonation of louis! This is nothing but excellent fun. Thanks so much for the smile on my face!

Take care ...

Alan

Nigel,

Nice Dixieland.

Susan does a good job on vocals. (that ending made MY throat hurt!)

Good mix - everything is clear and well blended.

Enjoyed.
