This Sunday won't be the first time I featured Joe Ashlar on Hammond B-3 at Snug Harbor. We first did it in 2015 reprising our show a couple of months earlier for the Chicago Jazz Festival. For Snug, we rented the organ from Blue Nile, but we had to move it down Frenchmen Street. ...Lucky timing when a faux second-line blocked traffic for us. Dig this shot of NOPD helping us out with the wedding in the background!
