Sidney Bechet
Sidney Bechet was one of the great geniuses and giants of jazz, one of the first to take what was a New Orleans musical folk tradition and turn it into a virtuoso art form loved around the world.

5 years ago, one of his saxophones sold for Euro 120,000 (US$140,000).

"Bechet to me was the very epitome of jazz... everything he played in his whole life was completely original. I honestly think he was the most unique man to ever be in this music." —Duke Ellington

The Bechet childhood home still stands on Marais Street, 7th Ward, New Orleans. Sidney Bechet grew up here with his brother trombonist Leonard Bechet. His first band, the Silver Bell Orchestra, rehearsed here.

There's no plaque.

There's also no door, and only part of a roof.

A view of the interior:

Can you picture, say, Mozart's house in Salzburg being left in this condition?

Why I didn't have breakfast at P.J.'s on Maple Street this morning
The old Betz Mortuary Building on the 7600 block of Maple (across from P.J.'s) on fire.

Maple Fire A

[Edit] Fire is mostly out, still some smoke, some of the crews are packing up. P.J.'s is open. But the old Betz Building looks to be pretty much toast.

Snow on the hibiscus

Snow is back in New Orleans for a rare visit. Actually sticking around for more than a couple minutes this time even. It's still falling as I post!
