Going to New Orleans (Digital Single)

Luke & friends' tropically jazzy take on a New Orleans folk classic.

Recorded during the Blue Mesa sessions.

"‘Going to New Orleans’ is this song I learned street busking in New Orleans. The oldest version that I can find is that of Babe Stovall. Babe was a notorious street performer through the '60s and '70s. His original version was entitled ‘G’wine to New Orleans.'

We'll let Luke tell the story:

"‘Going to New Orleans’ is this song I learned street busking in New Orleans. The oldest version that I can find is that of Babe Stovall. Babe was a notorious street performer through the '60s and '70s. His original version was entitled ‘G’wine to New Orleans.'

I also mixed in a few lyrics from Danny Barker’s mardi gras Indian classic ‘Chocko Me feendo Hey,' and wrote a few of my own verses. Roberto Luti (Playing for Change) on electric guitar and Chris Davis (King James and the Special Men) are featured prominently on the track."
