Tuba Skinny playing New Orleans style in the town square at Fest Jazz,
Châteauneuf-du-Faou, 2014,  with 
Dangerous Blues”
(Mattie Mae Thomas, 1939).

Since posting “Dangerous Blues”, I have received this correction from Pops Coffee: “Sorry but this is not the ‘Dangerous’ Blues’ performed by Mattie Mae Thomas. This is a totally different song composed in 1921 by Billie Brown for the Original Dixieland Jazz Band. Tuba Skinny follow the ODJB version fairly closely – even down to the key change from F to Bb for the vocal.”
Thank you, Pops.

Coming soon: Fest Jazz, 2015, Announcements!
