Lucia, Ingred & Flying Neutrinos – “I’d Rather Be in New Orleans” – [Flying Neutrinos]
I first saw this group playing in a coffee house in New Orleans and they just
knocked my socks OFF! Ingrid Lucia has a beautiful, sweet/sad, powerful – yet
– minimal voice that reminded me of Billie Holiday (though she does not think
so herself.) They also played the Jazz Fest and completely dominated – 3
encores and many standing ovations from a very demanding audience.
THIS IS THE REAL THING!
The band started as kids on the streets of New Orleans but they soon moved to
New York. Guest artist Doc Cheatham is one of the last of the “old-guys,” a
trumpeter from the first generation of New Orleans Jazz, still playing strong.
