More from First Friday

My friend Chris just passed on his setlist from First Friday. He had the opening set, from 8:45 to about 10:30, before my set (which you can find here). Lately (actually for about a year now I think), he's been really focused on New Orleans music. He's built up a great collection of music by current bands from New Orleans, enough to make me pretty dang jealous. You'll note that tracks 17 through 29 are all from contemporary NOLA bands, except for #27 and #28 (#27 is a famous Chicago sax player, #28 is by a New Orleans group, but not contemporary). Here are Chris's picks:
  1. For Dancer's Only - Jimmie Lunceford and his Orchestra
  2. (Keep It) in the Groove - Andy Kirk & Mary Lou Williams
  3. Shoo Fly Pie - Jonathan Stout and his Campus Five, featuring Hilary Alexander
  4. C Jam Blues - Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra
  5. Le Jazz Blues - Jimmie Lunceford
  6. 9-20 Special - Jonathan Stout and Campus Five, Featuring Hilary Alexander

  8. Betcha Nickel (Single) - Ella Fitzgerald
  9. Well Alright Then - Jimmie Lunceford
