Everything in New Orleans is a good idea. Bijou temple-type cottages and lyric cathedrals side by side. Houses and mansions, structures of wild grace. Italianate, Gothic, Romanesque, Greek Revival standing in a long line in the rain. Roman Catholic art. Sweeping front porches, turrets, cast-iron balconies, colonnades- 30-foot columns, gloriously beautiful- double pitched roofs, all the architecture of the whole wide world and it doesn’t move. - Bob Dylan, Chronicles, Vol. 1, 2004
Watch this great film about Hurricane Katrina which nearly washed New Orleans away.
Have you been to New Orleans? What do you think of the music of New Orleans?
