When the Saints Come Marching In

Posted on February 8, 2010 at 7:41am 1 Comment

Hello to all,

Am I dreaming, did the Saints win the Superbowl? I have to pinch myself. The Times Picayune headline says it all, "Amen". What a dream come true after 43 years.. the Saints are in that number and the City has erupted in pure joy. Grown men are crying on TV and on Tuesday we are having a parade for the Saints. All this and Mardi Gras is going on and we have a new Mayor. Praise God! and Thank God I live in such a wonderful place.

Hi Nita,
When i heard about this camp i said immediately " I´m gonig there".
I was in New Orleans 1964 and have been in USA many times since then, but never had time to go back to New Orleans. I´m really looking forwar to join the camp. I have been playing now for 17 years in a band called Alvi´s Dixie Stompers
Our bandleader Alvi Leppälä is joining me to the camp.
See you there,

Hi Nita:
I went to and typed in "Let Me Off Uptown". Somewhere on the list there is a "soundie" of the song on You Tube. For a short time we had video juke boxes called soundie where for your quarter (?) you could see the band playing the song on a movie as well as listen to the record at the same time. They were a failure - they would break with about the second quarter inserted in the machine. But we can watch it today on You Tube. Anita and Roy talk a little, Anita sings some, and then Roy comes back and shouts Anita - - Oh, Anita! - - - I feel something- - - and pretty soo Roy plays a great trumprt solo

I looked at the website. This looks great. I wish I could be there, but I'm out of the country during that week. Good luck with it.

Anita . . . . Anita!

Remember that? Anita O'Day and Roy Eldridge singing and Roy playing trumpet with the Gene Krupa Band? What was the song, "Let Me Off Uptown"?

Someone once wrote "If there hadn't been Louis Armstrong it would have been Roy Eldridge." I don't agree with too many writers. I think maybe Henry "Red" Allen.
When I was in college I was lucky enough to to see Henry "Red" Allen and his 5-piece Dixieland Band featuring JC Higgibothem several times laying at a cocktail lounge in downtown Minneapolis. 4"Higgy" ha won the Best Trombone In the Down Beat poll of musicians several years.
I can't read what I am writing.
I'll tell everyone at the Tri-State Jazz Society about your event in New Orleans. Some an afford it. I iknow they go to jazz festivals in California. Go Sasints!

Hi Nita:

Another drummer? Well a couple ratamacues and a Dixieland two-beat on the tom-tom to you. I grew up in Minneapolis, so - - - But that was last week. I have been a Phjiladelphia Eagles fan since moving East about 60 years ago. So I hope the NFL wins in the Super Bowl GO SAINTS!

In my photoalbum you´ll se more of my NO friends that I met in the late 1960:es and early 1970:ies. For example drummer Louis Barbarin-
Orange and Kellin Lars Edegran are old friends of mine and Orange has played with our band when back in Sweden. I have also other friends with connection to N.O a.o Fredrik John

















Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
